Floating, Flooding, Ever-Budding

Once you start the force of planning or implement a phase of an existing plan, fresh forces will come into play to which adjustment has to be made. Whether business starts pouring in, your staff or life partner starts to sabotage, or the economy busts –fresh forces there will be.

The good news is that this is natural. Einstein stated that force never moves in a straight line, but in a curve that eventually returns from where it came and in a higher arc, because the universe has progressed since it started.

You can count on the curve of the force returning –the key to success is counting on the new factors that occur at the higher arc level. Plan on stabilizing and harnessing these factors.

“There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at the flood leads to fortune.” ~Shakespeare

There is a stage of business informally known as flood –this is when everything starts to work and comes together –the arc of your planning returns. It can seem overwhelming because with the flood comes debris –the new factors.

You can float when you routinely plan to revisit your key business success factors and proactively stabilize them. Incorporating a holistic system of measurement and communication will help to navigate the flood and turn debris into assets.

Keep forcefully planning!

Every phase of evolution commences by being in a state of unstable force and proceeds through organization to equilibrium. Equilibrium having been achieved, no further development is possible without once more oversetting the stability and passing though a phase of contending forces. As a friend of mine once said, it is about “floating, flooding, and ever-budding”.  Originally posted Love-is-the-Bottom-Line

Top 10 reasons to embark on a planning journey

You can’t discover new oceans unless you have the courage to leave the shore ~ Anonymous

It used to be that business planning fundamentally was about designing linear steps between a a current situation and a chosen future.

There are as many reasons why this idea seems ridiculous in today’s evolving world as there are numerous non-linear way’s to live into a chosen future.

Planning today has very little to do with a chosen destination – planning is an exciting, powerful journey in and of itself – a journey of BEING.

Evolving business planning concepts teach us to proactively interweave action and deep attention throughout our entire lives.

 

Ironically, planning today is ultimately about understanding we don’t need a plan after all.

Top 10 reasons to embark on a planning journey:

1. To allow you to access how powerful you are and to get to your true “highest-self” desires.

2. To communicate to others who may want to participate with you (as investors, lenders, partners, etc.) what your business is about and where it is going.

3. To create a structure that holds the flow of prosperity and leverages flood.

4. To design a tangible framework in which you invite spirit to co-create with you.

5. To encourage you to ask yourself and others the right questions –right questions include hard questions.

6. To get you to a place where, as much as possible, you are operating from love and projecting out the expansion of love.

7. To give you the “now” of the day-to-day tending of the business of your business, by getting ideas out of your head, “onto paper” and ultimately into a higher stream of consciousness.

8. To have you participate in a consciousness re-creation of how business is done.

9. To serve as a guide for the lifetime of your business by providing guideposts and tools to analyze growth, as well as exit points.

10. To learn how to powerfully negotiate the integrated space between the tangible, material world and the intangible, invisible world.

Whether your planning journey gives you  a formalized business plan for financing or 5-sheets of handwritten notes, embarking on the journey of attention-action planning is a conscious choice to step into the reality of the vast unknown.
