7 Steps to Prepare for 2022

Episode #22: Welcome to the She Builds Show, I’m your host, Stefanie Olson. Today, I want to talk about planning for 2022. And for some of you, that might seem scary, but it’s so important. I want to just break down an easy-to-use system that I’ve been using for a very long time, and I want to help you set some goals for the new year. To me, having written goals and a plan is what moves the needle forward in my experience, both personally and professionally. In October, we sat down as a team and we started planning our business goals for 2022, we planned projects, we broke down the large goals into quarter goals and then broke down even further into smaller, monthly and weekly goals, this is how goal writing works, you have a big plan, the idea, and then you break it down into actionable and accountable steps.

Ready to learn more? Let’s go…


•  So step one, you have to have a goal setting planner or a system, no matter what type of person you are, I feel like we can all meet at the crossroads of, I have something I want to accomplish or a habit I want to create, and I don’t want to fail at it anymore. If you’re the type of person that’s spontaneous and free-flowing or you’re super tasky, I think we all have things that we want to do and we want to accomplish, and I’ve found through a lot of research, and a lot of trial and error, that this really works. I personally recommend the big life planning system, you can download it, I’ll put the link in the show notes.  (02:54)

•  For each zone, you break those down into weekly goals, so for example, spiritual zone, if I have a yearly goal of attending church each week, then I write down in that week, that the goal is to attend church. And then it’s there in front of me and I know, Alright, I gotta make sure I’m playing and ready to get everybody ready to go on Sunday, because that’s important and it feeds me and I feel better. So number five, write down your daily goals, these are always the zones in your life that you will need to give attention to. Usually when I need to change a habit or really work on something consistently, I focus this into my daily goals. So for example, in my health zone, if I want to drink a gallon of water a day, my daily goal would be to fill my large jug of water the night before, so that first thing in the morning I see it and then I know, Okay, in order for me to make it through this gallon, I got a chug a quarter of it right now.  (05:44)

•  As you sit down for that period of time, you open up your plan or your journal, and as you achieve those weekly and monthly goals, you check them off and you also recognize when you’re slipping. It also reminds me, Oh right. I said I was going to do that this month, and I only have a week left, I need to schedule that time with my spouse, and it keeps you accountable to that. By looking at it every single day. Now, step seven is accountability, and I think this step is probably the most important one, we know that if we write and track our goals, that they’re much more likely to happen. That’s been proven.

•   So seriously, focus on finding people who are in line with your goals and make appointments with monthly to check in. I have a business coach, we meet as a team weekly, we go over our goals for the month that we’ve been working on. And then we plan for the next month, we set aside time to be accountable to the things we said we would do. I really hope that you take a few hours during this little break when the kids are out of school, when you have some time and set your intentions for 2022, so that you start it well, but you also continue it well, and it goes far beyond January or February.
