Plan Your Work, Work Your Plan

Your ideal life includes big dreams based on audacious goals that will yield huge rewards—physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Here’s how to maximize the probability that you will enjoy success beyond even your wildest dreams as you baby step your way to greatness.


  1. Choose your destination.

Get clear on where you are and where you want to be. Then brainstorm—with no judgmental head talk—every conceivable way you can imagine to get there. Be sure to envision potential obstacles and how you might embrace them to help shape your optimal path to success.

  1. Dangle some carrots.

Without the lure of a payoff for all of your hard work, it’s really easy to become discouraged and quit when you actually encounter the obstacles. If you conspicuously post throughout your home and work space a list of the anticipated rewards for ultimately achieving your goal, you’re more likely to demonstrate the necessary creativity and persistence to stick with it when things get tricky.

  1. Get going.

Now that you know where you’re going, the many ways you could get there and why it’s worth the effort, get started. Trust your gut to pick the path that feels optimal at the moment and just start baby stepping your way to greatness. When it gets dark and the road is narrow and steep, remind yourself of the payoff and keep going. Keep gathering data, adjust your plan as you go based on experience and keep going.

You don’t have to know every step of the journey or every obstacle that you’re going to face. You don’t even need to have a fortune to fund you. All you need is

  • a clear destination,
  • a basic framework for getting there,
  • a worthwhile payoff,
  • the willingness to get started and
  • the flexibility to rework your plan on the fly.

Ready, aim, fire, STEER will be enough to get you going and see you through to the finish line.

What BABY STEP will you take to move you closer to your AUDACIOUS GOAL today?

About djwlifecoach

I am retired from 40+ years of helping individuals and teams build lives and organizations they love. One of the great joys of my retirement from professional practice is having greater bandwidth to donate my professional and creative talents to support and promote animal and social welfare charities. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world’s largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout led to finding my purpose guiding others on their journeys. As a board-certified coach, author, consultant, radio host, Reiki Master and EFT/tapping practitioner, I share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. 111419 DJW Sid CH Pet Corner Photo ShootI help clients achieve rapid, extraordinary, sustainable results by connecting who they are with what they do, a connection often lost through stress and the sheer busy-ness of daily life. Courageous self-awareness and unconditional self-love lead to honest choices based on priorities that nurture you and those around you on a journey to wholeness. Decades in coaching, consulting, change management, organization development, human resources and mixed media artistic expression honed my business sense, professionalism, creativity, intuition, leadership and communication skills. The result? Practical tools that help you become more insightful, creative, committed, productive and fulfilled. Even the most dedicated and hard-working individuals can shift from frustration to a sense of futility when their values, passion, work, and lives become disconnected. One of the problems with not taking care of our health is that the effects of ignoring it are often slow to show up. We continue to juggle family responsibilities, work and finances until we lose ourselves, waking up one day 50 pounds heavier in body and soul—no good to ourselves or anyone else. I love working with people who are ready to take life-changing action to make their dreams a reality. At each moment, you have inside you all the wisdom you seek to choose your life and your way of showing up. Limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings can block you from moving forward. An absence of love and concern for yourself can result in negative head talk that holds you back with discouraging messages about who you are and what you can do. By listening and caring deeply, I guide you in connecting with your own inner wisdom. We identify the way you’d like to live. We determine what’s blocking you and release you from the hold those blocks have over you—unleashing the positive energy that will fuel you forward. Together we develop a plan to move you closer to your heart’s desire. My books, blog, radio show and signature coaching programs help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness. What’s love got to do with it? Everything! My book, Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life! (Hay House/ Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. For fun, I love reading, sewing, knitting, yin yoga, afternoon tea, opera and movies. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my spouse, Wilson Abney, and the cat who runs our life, Maisy Jane.
