Look What Our Users Have To Say!
Last year as the the year came a to close, I was ready for a shift in my business & life, and I participated in a Design Your Life e-workshop that Pam held. I had been using the design your life books over the years, and I had a new one in hand as she trained. For the first time, I FULLY filled out the pages about my mission & vision & dreams & mapped out the goal timeframes as the book is laid out. I spent time planning each goal intentionally with deadlines - even relationship goals I had within my marriage & family. That 90 day cycle (Jan-March) & the one to follow (April- June) were 2 of the most shifting 90 day cycles I’ve experienced in a long time! I used the Design My Life planner as it is designed to be used and I hit (or made significant progress) on every goal area I wrote out! My business grew significantly & our team hit the next higher level that I had been reaching for for years. Some changes happened within my marriage that I intentionally planned out at the start of the new year- for the first time, I wrote out steps I was going to take with that goal to make those changes & I stuck to it! My marriage immediately changed! I attribute these changes in my business & life to a commitment to think differently & to intentional living, which Pam’s Design Your Life trainings & planner gave me the tools to make the shift & see it through!
My very first 90 Day Planner was the tool that made the difference in taking a quantum leap in 3 areas of my life. You suggested we pick only 3 areas. I followed the plan exactly as you suggested making sure every week to go over the previous week things I did well and things I could do better. The three categories I picked were spiritual, health/weight and career. #1 I didn't quite know how to chart spiritual growth. I wanted something tangible so I decided that memorizing scripture could be one way to make sure I was reading my bible and having a meaningful quiet time with the Lord. During those first 90 days I memorized quite a few scriptures and all of Psalm 91 and the first chapter of Colossians. #2 By charting the food section in the Planner I became aware of the extra "bites" I snacked on and the accountability in that journaling caused me to lose 23# in that time (a year later I have not gained it back). #3 Next, in my career I wanted to advance to a higher circle of achievement. I made the jump during those 90 days (October-Dec) from $300,000 to being on target at Leadership Conference for Half Million. So needless to say, your planner is MY TOOL OF CHOICE to develop the habits needed to support the goals I desire to reach. Thank you for pouring your life into so many! I'm just one, but I am one!
I have been using Pam’s Design Book and Focus Folder consistently for a few weeks. Prior to this time, I was one of those over organized directors that could not find what I needed. It is unreal how these tools have helped me to focus on keeping the main thing the main thing. I am insisting that each of my directors use both tools and that all of the consultants in my leadership development class use the Design Book. Spending time focusing on the wrong areas has limited my growth. If you use these “Million $” tools, designed by the a woman who has mastered this business, you will focus on the right things. My goals are in front of me! My affirmations can be recited daily! I am held accountable to God, Family Career, making healthy food choices and exercising!!!!!! I am the queen of purchases from Franklin Covey and Daytimer. Who would think that for so little I could get exactly what I needed.
Have you ordered Pam Shaw’s Book/CD/Director Focus Folders? I just received Pam Shaw’s CD “Designing My Life, Living My Vision” and the director focus folders – WOW was it powerful! I had gotten the book “Designing My Life, Living My Vision at Seminar and really had not used it, because I wasn’t quite sure How to Use it (is anybody out there with me)! Well, if you are feeling the same way, please order the CD NOW!!!! It will truly help you to develop your systems in all area. I think as directors being accountable and also working on “us” in all areas of our life is so important to keep us focused. Pam also mentions that discipline and accountability are necessary to move forward! Are you willing to change – Pam states that “Growth is Optional, but Change is Mandatory!” I love this statement she made on the CD (paraphrased by me of course): “Vision is the place you are going (that big thing, big position, etc.)” and Mission is what drives you there (what moves you! why you do what you do!).” That was just such an eye opener for me! I know those are such simple statements, but they awoke such an awareness in me! Pam has always been such an eloquent speaker. She paints the picture and shares her heart, like only Pam can. Hope this was helpful, if you had purchased the book and were not quite sure how you should be using it!
