Do You Love Planning? I Don’t!

golden-lifeRe-Imagine Your Business With This Fresh Approach.

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.-Gloria Steinem CLICK TO TWEET

I thought I had come to love planning again this year. NO SO! I know to be successful I need a plan and I need to work the plan.

I have a brilliant planner and a wonderful vision for 2014. I even have my Golden vision board.


YET something is missing, I am not jumping out of bed each morning with joy, I haven’t been painting much either. I have done a new painting today, that you will see tomorrow if you subscribe to The Weekly Heart Whisper ezine.

So what’s missing?

Something has to change as I am so conscious, of having too many projects half-finished.

Well I had a little chat with my Heart today and I heard, what about your art? You seem to be hiding it away again and we would like to remind you of these words that Sonia Choquette wrote to you quite a while back now when you were doing her Heart’s desire course. So I went and reread these words:

Your soul’s deepest desire at this time is to move toward a solid sense of self worth, recognizing your particular ability to connect with people at the deepest level, especially understanding their pain and challenges. Your words have a special impact on others as they find you deeply calming and healing at the very core. You are here to learn to make money based on your own talents and not look to others to support you. If you do it will back-fire. You are here to find your inner powerhouse and discover and recognize your essential self worth. You are here to grow and nurture things and move away from all temptation toward any of the darker things in life. You do no have the nervous system this time ti work with trauma, drama, or any other dark force including all forms of addiction. Instead work on your gifts and value what you have to offer, including feeling prepared to charge for your valuable services. On the other hand, be generous. It will uplift your spirit and make you feel powerful. You are a natural champion of others and a true healer and artist. This is your purpose to uplift and create beauty. Sing. Grow. Beautify. Walk away from dark forces and energies, things that do not celebrate and uplift you.

I am still reflecting on these words and I do know it is time to let the world know how they can tap into my gifts, by owning my art and working with me through my writing and my coaching. One thing I need to do as a priority is to complete the setting up of my online sales system.

One way of bringing this all together in a way that doesn’t seem like planning to me is to give to give more scope to my imagination. To this end I have  got my pass for Jennifer Lee’s free 4th annual Right-Brainers in Business Video Summit  which starts on tomorrow on April 7th through April 18th. I know that her Right Brain Business plan is a visual delight and has helped to take her and many others into both “Moola Making Success” as well as making a difference.

Right Brain Business summit

I read through the summit program and thought yes I can get do this, okay it’s 5 am for me. but I am usually awake then. (That’s 10-11 am PT)

I liked the potential learnings that I can get from attending the summit. The 3 highlighted ones stood out for me. I am promising myself that I will not get distracted and as I have no budget for new programs I am safe!

  • The power of thinking BIG, and leveraging your creativity and experience
  • How to make art that sells
  • How to create a highly profitable business, and work part-time
  • Advice on how to manage multiple moola-making methods
  • Using Pinterest effectively to grow your creative business
  • Why branding can get in your way – and why positioning is way more important

  1. I love this subject Suzie – and for the record I also love planning which is probably how I ended up in marketing during my travel industry career. The challenge I have is that I am definitely a big picture kinda gal – when it comes to the day to day minutia not so much. It’s one reason I keep my task list for the day in the corner of my laptop screen so that I always have my priorities right in front of me. One of my big goals for this year is to finally learn to let go enough to hire a couple of virtual assistants so I can focus on the creative stuff.

    1. Hi Marty,
      I am looking forward to reading when you let go and hire those VAS, Just yesterday as i was making a new sales page i thought I would love someone else to be doing this for me 🙂 I too am great on big picture and often too many ideas. I like your daily task list idea as I wrote them down and then often put it aside. Time for the postits on the screen

  2. Hi Suzie,
    Ahh, here’s a difference between us. I LOVE to plan. When I was little, I was always the slowest kid when building with blocks. My buildings always had symmetrically-placed doors and windows while my peers would get up to the roof and discover they’d forgotten them. The trouble was, I often ran out of time and had to leave my stuff half finished because I was too thorough. I learned that neither approach is better than the other–but things can work really well when you pair people together with different strengths. So you and I could be a dynamic team! I appreciate people who hate to plan because you’re usually the catalysts getting serious stuff done. Love your work, as usual, Suzie.

  3. Hi Suzie,

    There was so much I loved in this post–your vision board, the statement that you reread for inspiration, and the video you shared about right-brained, creative business. Truly inspiring! 🙂


  4. The part that really stood out to me was in the quote, about walking away from dark forces and things that don’t uplift the spirit. My need right now is to eliminate the clutter in my daily routine because it deadens me, drags me down. It’s not drama or trauma, but it’s like a little army of bugs that nibble away at me and end up creating holes in my spirit. Maybe some mixed metaphors there – but that’s the feeling!

    1. Hi Judy,
      We should support one another. My clutter is both physical and emotional. On Sunday we started on the bedroom, given that has been my office for the past 30 months it had lost it’s spark. clutter gone, everything clean needs some fengshui now and what I love is that instead of dumping things on a chair or free surface i have room to put things away and discovered some treasures too. Then we rewarded ourselves and watched a movie. Felt good.
      The lounge/office and the studio will be wonderful to do.
      I understand the holes in the spirit, I have experienced that lately along with actually feeling creepy crawlies on my skin- imagination in action I now know.
      wishing you the arrival of a clearing spirit to lift you
      love Suzie xx

    Hi Suzie, I actually LOVE planning, even though lately I let Spirit direct me each day by asking, How Can I Serve? I love your quote from Sonia and how you’re building synergy between your art and business! Signed up for the Right Brainers Business Summit. Ready for even more inspiration. Hooray! Love, Martine

    1. Hi Martine,
      you light up my morning, and I have just listened to Michael Port so I am fired up. I too have been asking each day how may i serve and right now it has me being more patient about moving forward. Yes Sonia’s quote that i had buried has me focused on as Jenn Lee would making Moola plans. I got the time conversion wrong- i may just get on one of the live calls- it’s 3 am down under not 5 as i thought.
      love Suzie xx
