Insight to Action FORM
often do you find yourself attending conferences and seminars leaving with so many great ideas? How many of these new ideas do you really put to action? It's ok if the number is shockingly low because it happens to so many of us, despite really good intentions.
What if you could dramatically improve your IMPACT, be MORE and do LESS? Sounds impossible, right? Download this form and put it to use to capture your top three insights from your next conference, coaching session or education session. It doesn't matter if you believe you have heard 100 powerful insights because we already know that too many insights leads to overload and inaction. Therefore, no more than three powerful insights.
For each insight, document the potential impact you could have if you put this insight to action. Finally, document the small action you will take immediately to put this insight to action. The key is to keep the action small.
What is the 10% change you are willing to make, especially if it has a 90% impact on your life?
I would love to hear your feedback after you put this to work for a bit.
