I'm talking about the stuff that falls outside of my day-to-day responsibilities. There's the day to day stuff that has to happen and then there's extra projects. Any extra projects I look at through a 10-year lens.
When I sat down in 2017 to write out my business plan one question I wrote down to continue to ask myself was: "Have I pursued a relationship without a long term end?"
Engagement with a client for a relationship that lasts a few months or a couple years is fine, but I believe more of my business relationships will outlast most others because I'm continuing to ask this question.
Last Thursday Michael and I connected about our upcoming Consulting for Therapists cohort-based course that launches today and I mentioned to him that the entire vision for any engagement I have with a client is long term.
And for our partnership on this project I made my decision through the lens of a ten year horizon. I think Michael and I will do some great stuff together over the coming months and years and while we've already spent a lot of time together since December and will do so over the next four weeks, I'm investing over a longer horizon.
Maybe it's that I turned 40 this year and the lens I see time through has changed. I feel so energized to look at projects that will really change my life and the lives of others over the coming decade.
See you in 2031.
