The D.R.E.A.M. Method is a framework to help you achieve your biggest business goal for 2023 in a way that’s unique & sustainable for you. It’s the Signature Framework that I’ll be personally walking all of my coaching clients through this year! But if you want to give it a shot on your own, here’s how to use it!
OK so take your biggest business goal for 2023 and walk yourself through the D.R.E.A.M. framework!
M – Mindset
Get your mind and brain on board with the goal. Are there any beliefs/stories/ideas/sneaky thoughts that say that your goal isn’t possible for you? How can you reframe or shift these thoughts that will inevitably come up (I call them gremlin thoughts lol) and try to derail your progress? Even if the NEW supportive thought feels a little bit like a lie at first – repetition over time will help you brain believe the new one. Thank you neuroscience!
A – Action Plan
Create a simple action plan that breaks down the steps you’re going to take into 15-30 minute chunks. Trust me, I’ve tried to say “write website copy” as a “step” and then been frustrated when I didn’t finish a 4 hour job in like one day. Then map out the action steps to ACTUAL days on your calendar. Keep your calendar somewhere that you can see/reference every day!
E – Execute
Ok, now you gotta like actually DO the dang thing. Get into the vibe of having already done the task and having it have been super easy! Then get after it, friend! I help my 1:1 coaching clients stay accountable every week – and work through anything that comes up that slows down their progress. And most importantly to help them give themselves grace when things get pushed back if LIFE happens!
R – Reflect & Refine
How did it go? Are there any small things to tweak once you’ve gotten your project or system pulled together? I help my 1:1 clients refine any marketing materials and reflect on the DATA they gather so they can make better decisions in their business. This is sometimes the HARDEST part of the process – to stick with a strategy, keep collecting data, and refining when it feels like the momentum is slow to show up.
D – Delegate / Done!
This part of the process involves systemizing your strategy/project so that you can move onto other projects or parts of your business. You’ll want to delegate any parts of your system to team members so they can help in the future. It’s also time to CELEBRATE a job well done and give yourself credit for moving your business forward! I see creatives miss this step so often and simply moving on to the next thing! Stopping to celebrate can help instill more self-confidence and self-trust in yourself as CEO!
So there you have it – the DREAM Framework! I’d love to know what your big goal for 2023 is and which step you think you need to focus your energy on most out of the DREAM framework to make it a reality!
