When Preparation Meets Reality; Nov 11th, 2019 Report

In Blog Image (Prep)

I created an amazing schedule this week, I planned for everything except reality. While I accomplish some success this week, I fell short of most of my goals because I didn't make a schedule flexible enough to include the unplannable. I became a full-time entrepreneur, for the third time, in early 2019 and I will share with you my most current life and business report where I'm transparent about the progress made or lack thereof toward my life goal. As of July 9th, 2139, We are in union with Love and completely free of pain and overfilled with pleasure. Through the continuous application of knowledge and obedience to God's plan, we will fulfill my purpose and ignite His gift(s) of passion in your enterprise and grow it to its faithful fruition. As you follow my journey I hope you learn from my failure, share in my success, and hold me accountable to my stated goals. let's look at this week's update!

Progress & failure made this past week

Quarter 4: 2019 [Week of November 11th, 2019]  

I am very proud of myself for completing the lead submission process for Positive Party DJs because it took a lot more work than I previously thought but I stuck it out and got it done. Of course, that meant pushing everything else I set out to do for this week. Going forward I will leave more room for new projects than I think I need so that I can accomplish my weekly goals. Plus I was blessed to attend a three-day business conference this week during which I learned a lot, the blog post of what I learned coming soon, but it gave me even less time to complete action items. The reason I feel good about this week is that I made progress and I am ready to lean on my experience for future weekly planning.

Outcome goals for this week

Quarter 4: 2019 [Week of November 18th, 2019]  

This week I will continue my focus on building and rebuilding the foundations needed to operate my personal life and businesses. This is a hard process for me because in the past I am prone to act without thinking and jump into every opportunity without a plan of attack. Since that has not worked out the best for me, I'm eager to build a skyscraper on the necessary foundation.
