Ever work on a puzzle? I haven't in years! The degree of difficulty of my last puzzle was likely an oversized floor puzzle my son had when he was three years old! Piece of cake. In general, I tend to find puzzles frustrating because it just seems to take a long time to complete, and I get overwhelmed by all the pieces. After I look at the picture on the box, I definitely have a distinct approach in how I will tackle the puzzle:
I realized I can apply the same process to things I want to accomplish. So when I begin to get overwhelmed by my business, and all I need to do, or if I keep procrastinating on a project, I take my puzzle approach to ease the frustration and get unstuck. Here is what it looks like:
1. Vision: Start with your vision and tap till you feel you are in a good place. (This is like the picture on the puzzle box). Ask yourself:
Be flexible! If you are at step four, and your progress doesn't match your vision, you have a choice:
1. Make adjustments to your vision.
2. Review steps 2 and 3 for changes.
How do you know if you should change your vision or your steps? It's all in the "feelings". The way you got to your vision in the first place is because it felt good! When you look back at your vision, drop down from your head (the thinking part of you) to your heart (the feeling part of you).
I hope this was helpful whether you are playing with puzzles or building your business!
