Wow, where has the time gone? Time has just flown by, and now it’s time to prepare for back to school. Some of you may have just entered into the summer months and want to enjoy this time off, take your trips, go on vacation, and just really relax. I’m all for that because there comes a time in life and business when you need to take a break. After you have considered everything that’s going on, maybe you will take a break in a different way this year. Before you take a break, the first thing I want you to do is to get on track to having an organized back to school season.
It’s important that you have a way of achieving your goals and dreams for your back to school campaign. In today’s blog post, I’m going to coach you through using the Goal Accelerator so that you can have an organized back to school year.
The first thing I want you to do is to discover your big goals and dreams for the children and for your staff that you want to achieve in your childcare business for back to school. Discovering that all comes through the first section, which is the Dream Big section. When you dream big and do what it takes by taking time to write what you want to accomplish, you will be more in tune to achieving that faster. With the Big Dreams goal section, you list your dreams by providing them with deadlines which eventually turn into goals. In the Goal Accelerator, you have sheets upon sheets upon sheets where you can list your goals and write your weekly notes to help you move forward in that direction.
Then you have another section which is very important to your planning process when planning for back to school. That section will walk you through the Goal Accelerator process. There’s a scripture that says, “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?” Luke 14:28. Whatever you want to accomplish with your dreams, you’ve got to first sit down and calculate the cost to see if you have enough to accomplish what you set your mind to.
To begin this process, I want you to go through the next section, which is the Let It Out Process. The Let It Out Process is where you’re going to just write out things that you have in your heart that you want to complete and accomplish. It’s sort of like a brain dump, where you dump everything out of your mind and write it down in a list on paper as it comes to you. You don’t need to have any numbers, you don’t need the “one, two, three” because when you pinpoint and bullet point things, you can get overwhelmed. I just want you to write freely.
This process will help you release your thoughts of frustration and lead you towards clarity. After you’ve gone through your dumping process, the next area is for you to plan using your clarity sheets. Your clarity sheets are what you use for a weekly breakdown. You plan what you want to begin to accomplish in your office, with your financials, with your staffing, your building and management location, your classroom, your marketing, and with your growth and development. These are what we call “quadrants.” You take and plan out your quadrants for the week.
After you’ve gone through this process, it really helps to organize and breakdown your week into quadrants. This way, you’re not all over the place, and you’re focused. You don’t have 50 things that you’re focusing on without it having its own place. I believe that everything has its own place, and that you should definitely put your ideas in their own places, as well.
Going through this section of the Goal Accelerator is a major stress reliever. It’s a major organizer for your back to school marketing. It helps you have a place of complete concentration where your notes are all in one place, and you can just walk through the process and solve your back to school challenges. Pulling from what’s in your heart and on your mind will help you lead your team, make better marketing decisions, and have a clearer financial layout. It will help you do all of scripture says you can do, when you first sit down and consider whether you have enough to accomplish the task.
One thing I believe is that all written dreams become goals, and that all written goals, if put in the acceleration process, become your reality. The Goal Accelerator was created just for you, the busy childcare business owner that owns and operates a childcare business they know can be more proficient and more successful than it currently is.
