Good morning! As promised in my last post, I will now tell you what to do with your list of 100.
If you haven’t created your list of 100 yet or don’t know what a List of 100 is, please refer to my last post.
Now, take a look at your list. You will see recurring themes or categories.
On a separate sheet of paper, write down the themes that pop out at you.
Example: (non business) I first did this exercise several years ago. I wrote about 100 things I worry about.
Some of my themes ended up being: Finances, my house, my kids,the animals, etc…
Once you have your themes written down, figure out how many words or sentences you have for each theme.
I like to go down my list and color code as I go along.
Example: green for financial, yellow for advertising, etc….
Once you have tallied up how many you have for each theme, take a good look.
Which theme recurred the most? Which one the least?
This should give you loads of insight into what you need to be working on in your business, what is going right in business and what isn’t.
You could use your theme’s as jumping off points for future blog posts, articles, or even your next business meeting.
