I’m here in Hawaii!
Super excited for REACH Retreat 2022, which starts on Monday!
On the flight over, I was thinking about a simple but really effective way I’ve found to “hack” my brain that I thought you might find useful.
And it’s this…
If I REALLY want something to happen, I put a date on it.
When you move from thinking about something as “one day” and give it an “actual day” (even if well into the future), something shifts.
And if you can then say that date out loud to others… well, that shift gets even more profound and more likely to HAPPEN.
I do that in small ways.
Like, if I want to get a marketing campaign underway, I put a date on it AND then I make the shift complete by SAYING those dates out loud to YOU… so then I know I will deliver.
Same with podcasts or newsletters (I’ve been using this hack for over 27 years – posting a weekly newsletter EVERY week that whole time!).
You could use this in all kinds of small ways in YOUR business…
- Setting the actual date for that holiday you’ve known you’ve needed for ages… And then telling your team.
- Picking the exact deadline for the LAST time you will do something you’ve been thinking of phasing out… And then letting your customers or providers or whoever is relevant know it’s coming.
- Deciding on the day of the week you’ll work from that shared office you’ve been thinking will be good for your productivity… Then saying that out loud to your family.
- Earmarking the date by which you will have reached 500 people signed up for your marketing promotion… And then declaring that goal to your team so it becomes REAL and they can get behind achieving it.
I also use this hack in BIG ways… to achieve BIG dreams.
That’s how it was for The REACH Retreat.
REACH was a dream of mine for a LONG time.
I even found old journals from more than 20 years ago where I was talking about taking women business owners on a retreat to Hawaii!
Then came the point in 2017 when I decided to use my brain hack and I took it out of “one day” and gave it an “actual day.”
And then magic happened.
The first REACH Retreat in 2017 was a dream come true.
Women LOVED it and so did I.
It surpassed even my highest expectations (dreams can be like that when you bring them into reality – maybe you’ve experienced that too?).
And since then, REACH Retreat has just got better and better.
I am SO glad I took it out of “one day” and gave it an “actual day.”
What might you need to “hack your brain” for right now?
What needs to come out of “one day” and start becoming a reality with a specific DATE?
One thing I’d love you to consider giving an “actual day” to is when you’ll come over to Hawaii with me.
We’re just about to open applications for REACH Retreat 2023, and I would love YOU to join me.
If the idea of getting a whole week with awesome business owners to create a real plan for building the business you LOVE sounds like something you want to take from “one day” and bring into reality…
Why don’t you try using my “brain hack” right now and give it an ACTUAL DAY…
And then, SAY THAT OUT LOUD by clicking the link below and letting me know you want to be on the priority list for notification for REACH 2023.
This costs nothing. It’s just a way for you to say “I’m curious” and we can get the info to you when it’s finalised (coming soon).
Who knows what magic you might set in motion :-)
I’m off to get a cocktail and watch the sunset!
PS We’re also putting together a Super Early Bird Offer to join us in Hawaii in 2023 with extra bonus gifts for early action-takers.
If this sounds like something you’d like to have an ACTUAL DATE FOR on YOUR calendar next year (I’d love you to join us!), let me know here and you’ll be the first to hear when we release the dates and best price early bird offer (coming soon!).
