Too many bright ideas are shut down because of a lack of planning.

During my coaching sessions, I often find underlying factors affecting entrepreneurs in achieving their dream goals: fears, scarcity mindset, stress, doubts, limiting beliefs about themselves or their industry, low self – esteem, among others.

Though shifting a mindset takes time, developing an action plan is a good first step towards a desired change.

Here are five benefits of creating an action plan:


If you are feeling lost, overwhelmed or without a clue on what to do to move forward, stop making the same mistakes or take your enterprise to the next level, an action plan can give you the clarity you need to prioritize your time and energy.


An action plan is more than a list of to – do tasks, it is a step-by-step guide tailored to help you focus and committed on what matters: achieving your goals.

Measuring progress.

In which areas are you stuck and in which are you moving forward? By following an action plan you can track your own pace, certainty, obstacles and effort given or needed in the road to success.


Alongside with proper time management, all tasks needed to achieve any goal need to be organized in order of importance so you can reach faster your end result.


Each action step taken shortens the path towards your desired outcome, lessens your stress levels, makes you more aware about your capabilities and drives to you completion.

At this point, I want to emphasize, accomplishing an action plan often takes more than a simple desire and some cute lines in paper.

It requires discipline.

It requires determination to change the course of your business.

It requires constant motivation to continue working despite the amount of time it takes for desired results to show up.

And it requires, for a long – lasting outcome, an ultimate strategy.
