Part 1: Your Big Picture

This is part 1 of a 4-part series.

I’ve continued with my Monday Business Practice for enough years now, it’s a weekly requirement.

If I don’t create time to get my week all figured out, I feel like a chicken runnin’ around with her head cut off.

I end up going through my week not sure what to do & by the end of the week, I feel like I didn’t accomplish a thing.

I def feel like this guy:

In other words: I commit to my Monday Business Practice as it supports me in keeping my shit together.

My weekly practice has 4 main phases:

Big Picture

This initial phase is all about gathering back into alignment & remembering why we do the things that we do.

Essentially we’re setting the container for our business practice.

In creating my container, I tidy up my work space.

I move my body. I breathe.

I sit at my altar, tap into my intuition, & practice gratitude.

I complete my container setting by burning lavender as a reminder to my brain: Here we go! Business time!

Once I transition to my desk, I verify I have the necessary tools for my Monday Business Practice:

  • journal
  • Passion Planner
  • pencil, eraser, & pen
  • laptop w/ Google Calendar & Asana

I then give myself a few moments to remember, listen deeply, & write out my Big Picture in my journal.

Our “Big Picture” is the reason we do what we do. The thing that lights us up. The goal, the dream….our motivation.

Once we remember our Big Picture, we can plan our week with this – & only this – in mind.

Anything that doesn’t have to do with our Big Picture gets eliminated!

Your Action

Grab your journal & write about your Big Picture.

Keep your Big Picture in mind as you move throughout the week.

Observe which tasks are in alignment & which are not.

Be gentle & just observe.
