Why You Need a Holistic Planning Model Now

If you’re a business owner, then you know the importance of strategic planning. Whether you’re currently working with a coach, using a planning model of your own design, or are simply aware of the problems you’re experiencing as a result of not planning, you know that a strategic plan for your business is critical to your current and ongoing success.

Holistic Planning for Small Business Owners

However, many owners fail to recognize that this planning is not enough. Simply put, your current planning process likely only looks at a third of your time. If you’re an owner, your work life and your personal life are inextricably intertwined. Whether you like it or not, your business affects your personal life, and your personal life affects your business. Your time is spent switching back and forth between so many different issues, from whether the parking lot is plowed to your insurance coverage to whether your employees are fully engaged. Your life extends beyond 9 to 5, but most planning systems only look at this third of your day.

It’s tempting to put your head in the sand like an ostrich and ignore the sandstorm around you. However, it is better to accept the issues and prepare to tackle them head on. A system that looks at your entire life–from the nitty-gritty of your business to your personal relationships–will help you better prioritize and delegate.

We think differently.

The One-Life Game Plan™ is our holistic planning model that breaks planning down into seven key components of a business owner’s life:

  • Time Management
  • People
  • Health and Spirit
  • Sales Process
  • Operational Levers
  • Money
  • Accountability

We work with clients to create customized solutions that work across these seven segments, looking at your whole life–not just the one-third that is most obvious. No matter what model you use, a holistic planning solution can help you run your business better and improve your life.
