If you've been following my blog, you may have noticed I've been going through a 100-Day Plan with Coach Mark Hollander. The 100-Day plan addresses that nagging, seemingly insurmountable business project that continuously surfaces in your mind to steal your peaceful moments like an invading Mongol Horde. To catch-up, checkout my posts on sessions 1 and 2.
I've had some questions on what the actual framework of the 100-Day Plan is, and Mark has graciously allowed me to broadcast in living color! As an added bonus, Mark will have downloadable PDFs at his website later on this summer detailing what I'm about to describe.
The 100 Day Plan Agenda
So you've signed up for a 100-Day Plan, now what? As a rule, Mark meets with a client once per week for about an hour across a 100-Day time period. As I've seen thus far and understand from Mark, the framework works as follows:
Sessions 1 - 4
You'll establish a business goal that is realistic and measurable as the main focus for the 100-Day Plan. The goal isn't finalized for the first 4 sessions, leaving room for the possibility that the goal may evolve or roll-right. According to Mark the goal is to, "keep on unrolling the ball of string until you find the end tied to piece of paper with your goal on it."
The 5 Modules of the 100-Day Plan have an interoperability about them that gives you the flexibility to progress through them in the most desirable fashion.
Get your infrastructure in check
Learn to have command over thinking-feeling-knowing
- Concept of Systems Theory
Learn to see where you fit into the ecosystems you live in
See how they overlap
- Cashflow forecasting
Learn to generate business projections you feel comfortable with.
- Optional: could be anything you choose
(I'm leaning toward aquatic karate)
I hope this provides some perspective on the moving parts of the 100-Day Plan. I invite Mark to post any corrective comments :).
