Peter Drucker surprised us when he said: 

“The most unhappy people I know are planners.”

Really? Didn’t Drucker dedicate his life to teaching management and planning principles?

We often have a desire to do something, yet it isn’t executed. Other times we work hard to execute our plans, but they simply don’t roll out the way we intended…

During the webinar, Lloyd Reeb and Doug Piper are joined by Halftime Alum and Founder/CEO of DLP CapitalDon Wenner, who will show us how to fulfill our purpose while adapting to the twists along the journey.

During our time together, Don shared how he ruthlessly executes his unique purpose, without becoming miserably inflexible.

3 Strategies to Sync Your Calling With Your Calendar

1. Be intentional. – Approach the areas of life that are most important to you with the same intentionality used to approach your business. Consider the “eight F’s” (faith, family, friends, freedom, fun, fulfillment, fitness, and finance) as a starting point.  

2. Set clear goals. In the words of Bobby Knight, “the will to win is not nearly as important as the will to prepare to win.” Create one or two goals for each area of your life that is a priority. State a clear purpose for that area and design checkpoints for both the long-term and the short-term in order to track progress.

3. Protect the time. – Build all areas into your annual calendar, weekly schedule, and daily activities. It’s easy to fill our calendar with things that act upon us. It’s much harder to proactively plan out how to spend our time and how to best maximize and fill the hours we have. After all, where we invest our time indicates what we truly value.
