Hello October! It's the start of a new month and a new quarter. With this new month comes the start of the 4th quarter of the year. Have you taken a few minutes today to reflect and capture your goals for the month and the quarter?
This week's blog post includes questions for you to consider as you step into October, Q 4 and the fall/spring:
What are your top 3- 5 goals this month? This quarter?
What will "wild success" look like at the end of the month? The year?
What's the ONE THING you really want to accomplish this month?
What are the key metrics you want to track (note: be sure to use the Monthly Daily Tracker AND/OR the One Line a Day in the Coaching Business Builder)
What's going to help you be successful?
What daily steps will create the momentum you are looking for?
As you consider the end of the year, what is important to put a focus on?
Who will be able to support you around your goals?
What key learning from Q 3, and September, can you carry into Q 4 and October?
What's the one thing you need to say NO to in order to focus?
On Friday I hosted my monthly "Month End Reflection and Monthly Planning Session". This is a one-hour program I run each month (usually the last Friday of the month). It's geared to provide you with time and a structured live process to reflect on, and capture. your achievements and learning for the month, while also leaving space to set your goals for the next month.
I'll be hosting 2 of these reviews in October. I hope you can join me.
Mark the October month end sessions now - Friday October 26th from 3 - 4 pm ET OR Wednesday October 31st from 8-9 am ET. Cost: $39 US. Reserve your spot here.
Another project which is underway that you might enjoy following along this fall is the #90DaysPlanDoTrack series of daily questions I am posting on Instagram at the CoachingBizBuilder page. Every day until the end of fall I will be offering a different prompt. We're just at day 10 today, so grab a pen and your journal, and join us!
As we step into shorter days of October in the Northern hemisphere, but also brilliant fall colors, I hope that you will enjoy the month!
