Empire Building and Castles in the Sky
The formula is simple:
Perform 3 action each week that move you closer to your goal.
Do it for 3 months.
Set down the framework for each month and then focus on the weekly actions. This is a bite size action plan that can work on any goal you want to achieve. Think big but act small.
Here is my lose framework for the next three months.
March – Foundation building / drawing up the blueprints.
April – Construction / planning and creating content, products and services
June – Moving in and hanging out my shingle. Invite the world.
These will be my monthly focuses but I am sure that they will overlap as I move along.
This week, my intention is to create a solid plan. To bring my lofty dreams down to earth and use them as the foundation to create a business plan. A road map of sorts. I can’t get to where I want to be unless I know the starting point of my journey.
That starting point resides in my castle in the sky mind. It’s walls are made up of hopes, fantasies, dreams, and playful thoughts. The texture is rough and unfinished but made strong with the sturdy support of faith and enduring belief . The view out the windows are sometimes foggy and at other times a crystal clear vista.
My dreams are breezy and bright but until I get them out of my head and write them down, my goals will remain without substance; just clouds, illusions, and ethereal images.
The first, and most important action I need to take, is to create the blueprint needed so I can begin to build my empire and make that castle real.
I laugh because as I am writing, the image of Nero fiddling while Rome burns pops into my head.
Wow, that’s just harsh, so because my castle is still floating in the air of my mind I will send out a magical knight in shining armour to banish that image. Poof, and it is gone. Fantasies are useful that way. 😉
This week I am creating, there is no room for negative thoughts or fears. Just pure intention, a lot of clear focused thought, and a pen and note book to make it real.
Action #1 – I need to clarify the answer to these three questions: What do I want to achieve? How do I want to achieve it and why do I want to achieve it?
Action #2 – After I answer those three questions, I want to re-write my “about page” on this blog to reflect the new answers for a better message consistency. The start of developing my brand.
Action #3 – Build up my meme file to have a months worth of quotes for my Facebook page. This is a creative project for me (because after all that planning and thinking, I need my soul to come out and play). But really the plan is to create an on going file of quotes for meme content to use as Facebook posts so that I can plan out weekly themes with a purpose that parallel my blog posts on this site.
Here I go. Wish me luck.
