I sincerely hope that you have made the most out of the first half of this year. It has been an explosive time for land investors that continues to offer unparalleled opportunities
However, if you have not met your 2021 mid-year goals, don’t get discouraged. There is no time like the present to accelerate your success.
Here are 6 steps that you can take to develop a 90-day action plan for land investors to sprint to success in the second half of 2021.
How to create your 90-day action plan for land investors
Make time to create your action plan
The first step in developing an effective 90-day action plan for land investors is to make time to plan. Block off a few days prior to July 1st and dedicate that time to your action plan. Making dedicated time to plan is essential. If it’s not in your diary, it won’t happen.
Reflect on the past
Once you have made the time to create your action plan, spend some time reflecting on the past. Assess the accomplishments you achieved and challenges you faced in the first two quarters of the year. Look at the goals you set at the beginning of the year and measure how you are doing.
Create a ‘stop doing’ list
Your time is the most valuable and scarce resource in your business. The first step in creating your action plan is to identify things that are currently taking up unnecessary time. These are tasks you can delegate to other team members. Make sure to hand over some of your “busy work”, so you can start to drive your business forward.
Identify actions that created a mess in your business
Reflect on the past 6 months in your business. Identify the actions you took in your business that made a ‘mess.’ When things feel messy, it highlights the need for systems and processes to ensure optimal productivity and outcomes. Make a clear action plan to clean up, so that you can start on a clean slate in Q3.
Plan for the future
As the CEO of your business, it’s your job to be a time traveler. You need to decide precisely what you want to achieve in the future and plot a course for your team to follow. Your action plan should focus on the steps that you need to follow to achieve your vision.
Identify what you need to achieve your Q3 and Q4 goals
Once you have worked through the past 6 months, assessed what you can do right now to improve productivity, and forecast where you want the business to go, you are ready to start implementing. Identify what you need to get to your goals and find out who can help you get there.
