How I'm Editing My Own Life!

It's been 4 weeks since I launched my Life Editor business and the results I have witnessed and personally experienced are truly extraordinary and humbling!

Here are just a few to whet your appetite:

  • Week 1: Stood up an amazing website http://www.yourlifeeditor.com and got tons of positive feedback, social shares, and kudos from friends around the world in 36 hours 
  • Week 2: Secured 2 new clients and 10 referrals from friends within 7 days 
  • Week 3: Increased my annual income with new Life Editor Guild memberships by $10,000 within 12 days (click here to learn more and join the Guild now!)
  • Week 4: Consulted with and completed several "think and do" coaching sessions with 3 talented professionals who are pursuing amazing BHAGs, including:

 

A talented executive of a $100M a year global business consultancy who is working on writing a New York Times best-selling creative non-fiction novel - believe me when I say her story is a nail biter!

 

A precocious and accomplished MBA from NYU's Stern School of Business who since graduating is working to scale her business educating corporations on how to recruit, engage, and retain millennials in the workforce - did I mention that she is a millennial, too, tellin' em like it is!

 

A creative maven who is taking his creativity to the street by building a digital first, film school, focused on training next generation talent from across America and the African Diaspora - his most recent cohort of students kicked off this summer and they are already on their way to producing the summer’s next block buster films.  

Sounds like a lot, doesn't it? Take a breadth. Feels like a lot when I think about it too. I'll let you in on a little secret, though. That was the cliff notes version of the magic Guild Members have dropped over the last 4 weeks. I can't begin to capture it all in one post.

Stay tuned, I'll share more soon…

If you feel like you have been running hard and fast, too, making steady progress on your BHAG that you are proud of and still having fun, take a bow. Big up - that's huge!

For those who are getting BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOALS (BHAG) work done, but not having much fun. Take a pause to avoid burnout. Before you go too far, remember that fun is all part of your life edit. When I say fun, I mean genuine, bend over, pull-a-muscle laughter and ear to ear smiles every day while you are moving your BHAG forward and juggling all of the other goodness and craziness in your life. Immediate, small gratification is a good thing. It gives you the time, headspace, and endorphins to go the distance. I’ll share more on the importance of intentionally infusing fun in your journey towards achieving goals in a later post when I talk about rewards and inspiration.

 If you haven't experienced any movement on your BHAG over the last 3 weeks since my launch, ping me and let's talk. Click here to sign up for your free consultation. We'll get you in the Life Editing Guild and on the fast, fun track!!  

 Whether you do it now or later, just remember the energy you expend everyday thinking about or feeling guilty about not making enough progress on your BHAG can be used to take action and begin the virtuous Life Editing cycle.

 One thing is for sure, you'll be hearing from me again soon. I'm starting new Life Editing conversations everyday and working with amazing people like you to make fast and fun progress on their BHAGs.

 Until next time, ready, set, edit…

 

Cheers,
