It's okay to stop focusing solely on the day to day.

Do you struggle with taking a step back and looking at the big picture of what you're trying to accomplish? Are you so busy with the day-to-day tasks of running a business that you are barely able to come up for air, let alone plan for more than a day at a time?

It's time (in fact, it's WAY OVERDUE) to take a step back so you can fill up your gas tanks, reflect on your mission in business and life, reconnect with the work you're doing, and refresh it all so that you can come back with renewed gusto and fire.

Be honest, when was the last time you were able to take a step back and do any of those things?

At Propelle HQ, we intentionally choose one month each year where we keep our calendar light and take a step back from the day to day tasks so that we can plan for the year ahead. 

We look at what has been working, as well as what hasn't. We look at what we loved spending our time doing, as well what drained us and left us feeling a bit ... meh. And we look at what opportunities we missed in addition to the ones that we will take a pass on moving forward.

When we're done, we have a cohesive look at our year ahead — our programming, our launches, our product and service offerings. 

It lays the foundation for the year so that we can get. to. work. 

We'd love to encourage you to do the same. Where in your business could you benefit from a little MA$E-over? You know ... some breathing, stretching, shaking, and letting go? 

In case you need a little help getting your thoughts organized, we've put together a handy dandy workbook to help you shed some light on the things you've been loving, what you've been kiiiiiiind of hating, and where you want to be heading.
