Embrace the Magic of Quarterly Planning: Your Key to Daily Progress Towards Realising Your Dreams

Introduction: The Power of Writing Down Dreams

"Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible" - Tony Robbins

Have you ever felt the transformative power that comes with writing down your dreams & goals?

The act of putting pen to paper can manifest wonderful possibilities.

But, having these dreams & goals on paper is only part of the equation. The real magic lies in creating a clear and actionable plan and making daily progress towards them.

Which is where the Dream Life Daily Progress / Quarterly Planning Journal and the accompanying Video Workshop come into play to help you.


Setting the Big Picture with Yearly Goals & Dreams

"Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success." - David J. Schwartz

Before diving into the quarters, start by painting the big picture.

This involves setting your Top 3 dreams & goals for the next 12 months. This sets the important context - allows you to dream big and truly envision the life you want to lead. The most important things to focus on. However, once this inspiring vision is in place for you, it's crucial to break it down into manageable and time specific actions to get you there.

That's where quarterly planning comes in...


Harnessing the Power of Quarterly Planning 

"Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it." - Henry David Thoreau


I call each quarter a 'mini year' and take a similar approach to planning quarters as many people take to planning years. But quicker.

So much changes in a few months, so taking time to think and plan each quarter keeps you nimble and really effective.

With your annual dreams & goals clear, it's time to refine these into your Top 3 Dreams/Goals for the upcoming Quarter and then Months.

Take time to brainstorm what you need to do to achieve your Top 3 dreams/goals - and that will help you come up with a host of smaller goals and actionable steps for each Quarter and then Month ...which then sets the important context for planning your weeks and days in a way that keeps you focussed on the most important things you want to make happen. Day by day.

This approach makes the journey towards your dreams and goals less overwhelming and more achievable as you make daily progress.


The Art of Pre-Week Planning

"The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities." - Stephen Covey

To further streamline your path to success, take advantage of the Pre-Week Planning space in the Journal. It allows you to map out all the things you need to accomplish each week, which then informs your Daily Plan pages. Here you'll jot down your morning, afternoon and evening commitments, your priorities, to-do list, and even moments of gratitude and exercise. This detailed approach ensures that every day contributes to your quarterly objectives.


Reflecting, Learning & Improving

"Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything." - George Bernard Shaw


But what happens when things don't go as planned? That's where reflection and adaptation come into play. After each week and month, take some time to look back on what worked and what didn't, and decide what to do differently next time. Remember, the essence of your journey is about progress, not perfection. So, commit to daily progress and savour the process of working towards your dream life.


Through the power of quarterly planning, you can make your dream life a reality. One day at a time.

The Dream Life Daily Progress / Quarterly Planning Journal and Quarterly Planning Video Workshop are there to guide you every step of the way, nurturing the discipline and consistency needed to make your dreams come true.
