Tip number two is ‘GET DETAILED‘. Are you getting specific and detailed now that you have figured out what your ‘Why’ is?
Are you getting detailed with what exactly you’ve have to do in order to get there?
How will you do that? What steps are you going to take in order to get there?’
Perhaps you are wanting to have a strong relationship with your husband. Or, you want to gain a strong relationship with your family.
Are you wanting to lose weight or get healthier this season?
Or, maybe you have a specific amount of money that you want to see in the bank by a certain date. How are you going to do that?
You’ve have to get really specific and detailed.
So let’s dig in as I go through step 2 of the six steps for a successful quarter.
6 Steps to Successful Strategies for Each Quarter: Episode 9 – Step 2
My name is Blair Critch and I help success driven women keep their overachiever status while reducing stress, increasing energy, without sacrificing time with their family.
My example: In 2017 I decided that I wanted to improve my marriage. I saw a lot of people around me at our age group that were starting to get divorced, or had unhappy marriages. Although I was happy in my marriage, I wanted to make sure that I was improving my marriage. I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t being complacent, and that I wasn’t just in a marriage, but I was actually enjoying my marriage.
So I went about doing this…
I bought us a couple devotion, that we both read every single morning. It was in our bathroom, and that way we had something to talk about every day. it wasn’t just, “Hey, how was your day today at work?” or “How are the kids?” We had something to talk about. We both read it in the morning, Sometimes we would text things to each other throughout the day about it, or just ask each other a question about at the end of the day. It allowed for new conversations.
We decided to have two date nights a month, minimum. This was to make sure that we got out of the house together, dressed up, looked nice, had great conversations and did something fun together.
We also go away one time a year together, just the two of us, no kids. We try to find somewhere, either new to explore, or go somewhere that we’ve been before, but try new things.
I also spent one whole month writing down what I loved or respected about my husband. Every day I wrote down something different. At the end of the month, I realized what an amazing man, what an amazing father, what an amazing husband, what an amazing son, what an amazing brother, he truly is. This wasn’t done so that I could give it to him, although I did give it to him at the end the month. It was done for me, so that I could see, recognize and look at him differently. I realized all the things he does.
Those were the action steps that I did. Because me saying I want a better marriage, or I want a more intentional marriage, doesn’t mean anything if I don’t write down the steps I’m going to do in order to get there.
Very specific and very planned.
Every Wednesday I do a Facebook LIVE where I dive into certain topics in depth while taking questions from those who can join us!
