The Doctor is In – How often do you update your Success Life Strategy

How often do you update your Success Life Strategy and why/ how are you going about it? Rx

Annually, I review and update the entire Success Life Strategy (SLS). Throughout the year, I engage with different parts of the SLS at different intervals. For example, I may evaluate the Success Quotient section monthly or even daily based on working toward a goal, objective, or action item. On the other hand, no need to review my Values section unless I have a difficult decision to make that is creating conflict, doubt, or second-guessing.

To make next year an Exceptional Year, I review through last year’s objectives, goals, and actions and the Success Metrics assigned to them to determine where I succeeded and where the challenges lay. All of these taken into consideration together is my Success Quotient. The more I achieve these metrics, the more successful I am at reaching my goals. The old adage: you won’t achieve what you don’t measure.

Then review my Values, YOUnique Excellence Pillars (how I operate in the world), and the Impacts I want to make with my life. Reflecting on what I’ve accomplished, the challenges had, what I’ve learned, and new opportunities, I may make adjustments on parts of the Success Life Strategy. Then I begin working on the creation of my next “Exceptional Year.”

Delving into your Success Quotient

12482705_sYour Success Life Strategy focuses you on creating the impact and multi-dimensional success you deserve to have in your life. 100% of the people – just like you- who have incorporated this tool into their lives have had profound results. Including me – its been THE KEY to my own success.

One element of the Success Life Strategy is creating your “Success Quotient.”

So, what is a Success Quotient and how can you use them?

Once you’ve created your Success Life Strategy, you have a set of objectives, goals, and action items. To move forward effectively, you will want to measure your progress, which is why we adopted the Success Quotient.

The Success Quotient is a set of metrics – preferably quantitative and objective, yet sometimes qualitative or subjective – that measures your progress toward your goals and successes.

For each item – as I shared in the above example – you create a measurement of success trying to become as objective as possible even for soft or personal goals. We do this because it can be difficult to see the transformation we make in our lives, when we don’t actively measure the actions we take to create change in our lives.

That’s why I’ve been such an advocate of creating your Success Life Strategy – it’s a plan for your personal life to create multi-dimensional success and really affect impacts that you feel are important with your life.

A key part of this is the Success Quotient.
