2021Q3 REVIEW: Planning
Sep 17, 2021
LEADER'S FIELD GUIDE
Let’s reflect on the Leader’s Field Guides from 2021Q3. As we focus on “planning”, how does better forecasting impact our success and calm?
It’s time for a review! Reflect on 2021Q3 and consider what you’ve incorporated into your leadership and what needs more attention. Think about how each topic challenges you to reflect on your forecasting and scheduling over the last three months. What role are expectations and surprises playing? How can you enhance your influence through sound priorities and staunch commitment? Let the following recap of the Leader’s Field Guide remind you of the lessons from this quarter. Using the lens of planning, what overarching goal will you set for 2021Q4?
- Secret Passageways: We reflected on the 5-Star service that makes people feel respected, understood, protected, and valued. (Galatians 5:13, Exodus 17:12)
- Future Me has One Problem: We highlighted present bias influence and emphasized strategic investment rather than short-term indulgence. (Romans 7:15, Romans 8:2)
- Anytime You Wish: We brainstormed about what makes criminals feel invincible and why it’s better to do “good time” over “bad time”. (Hebrews 13:3, Isaiah 61:1)
- World Wide Web Flashback: We focused on confirming a new solution is scalable and supports the pace and desire of an existing target market. (Isaiah 42:16, Proverbs 22:29)
- Not as Planned: We learned that how an Olympian faced adversity and kept fighting, had gratitude, and teamed up. (Proverbs 24:10, Psalms 50:15)
- Scheduling Conflict: We examined how weighing and prioritizing, maintaining our integrity, and being selective helps with calendaring. (Matthew 7:11, Psalms 84:11)
- Unseen Forces: We discovered how invisible influences, confusing decisions, and poor communication can be costly. (Proverbs 15:1, 1 Timothy 1:19)
- Don’t Get Trapped: We talked about how reconsidering our limiting beliefs impacts our pursuit of success, money, and happiness. (Colossians 2:8)
- I Quit!: We discussed the importance of confidence in and between team members, dedicated employees, and purposeful and impactful work. (2 Peter 1:3, 1 Peter 5:2)
- Moving Mountains: We explored why we can’t give up and what requires us to seek a pardon. (Isaiah 12:3, Proverbs 17:9)
I challenge you to make a formal list of outcomes you envision for 2021Q4. What habits can you establish in the next three months that would help you develop more focus on strategic investment rather than short-term indulgence-- at work and at home? (I can hardly express my gratitude for the community of support I have in our weekly Synergy Groups-- I learn so much from you and our Spirited conversations.)
