“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.”

– Leonardo da Vinci

Many business people take time out around now to think about the year ahead and get their priorities and objectives clear (and if you don’t do this, I strongly advise you to plan at least a day before Santa comes). Christmas and the New Year are natural times for people to reflect on the year that was, their life in general and that’s usually when the resolutions kick in.  Unfortunately for most, those ‘this year is different’ resolutions never get past January.

That was one of the reasons for creating my annual 1 day workshop ‘Blueprint’. Structured time out for people to get clear on their priorities in a positive environment with other like minded people, and kick start the year in the best possible way.

It’s focused on your entire life, business and personal to bring more of that harmony Mr. daVinci speaks of. I usually run only one day in January but the planned workshop on the 7th January is almost full, from last year’s attendees. (Only 3 spaces left.)

So, I’ve decided to run a second workshop on the 14th January if there’s enough interest.

The full details are below in a letter. If it’s of interest to you please let me know as soon as possible as it will be first come first served.

Have a great week,



Blueprint Letter:

Take One Day Out in January

To Plan The Rest Of Your Year

‘Blueprint 2011’

Hi there,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and focused on new opportunities in your business.  I wanted to let you know that the successful ‘Blueprint’ day I ran in January of this year will be held again on Friday 7h January 2011 and Friday 14th January.

The feedback from those who attended that day was fantastic and overall, attendees found it a really useful way to take some time out to get focused on their priorities in business and in their lives.  With so much going on in the world, in terms of commitments and responsibilities it’s not often we take time out for ourselves – yet this is usually the time that makes the difference.  And January is a great time to think and plan ahead.

Every successful person knows the value of planning and prioritisation, but despite this, not everyone takes the time to do it – or knows the most effective way of doing it.  More clarity leads to more focus, which leads to better results.  What difference do you think it would make to your business and life if you were even 10% clearer on where you’re going and why?  What about 20% clearer?  Even 100% clearer?

Essential To Be Clear On Your Priorities

Wouldn’t you agree that it’s probably more vital than ever to be clear on what you’re priorities are?  I invite you to join me for a 1-day event that will make a big difference to your year – in both your business and personal life.  At this time of the year most people set resolutions or goals for the year ahead.  Unfortunately, most never achieve these goals or find themselves setting ‘smaller goals’ to be sure of getting them.  Yet they never really ‘stretch’ themselves.

At the ‘BluePrint 2011’ workshop you will learn why this happens, and more importantly how to avoid it.  This will be a unique workshop, where I will use the best of my experience and training to deliver value that will be worth far more than the cost of the day.

The day will be run in a workshop format with similar minded people, which means that you will also get the chance to bounce your ideas off experienced business people from different industries and also have a chance to hear ‘Uncommon Solutions’ to some of your immediate business problems. The format of the workshop will be a mix of learning, information sharing and also ‘time out’.

In a nutshell, you will leave this 1-day event with:

  • More clarity on your long term future
  • Your top priorities for this year clearly identified
  • A practical tool for planning your time every week and month
  • A written action plan
  • Simple strategies to help grow your business/improve your job
  • Information on how to keep yourself motivated for the year ahead

Apart from getting the above, by taking this time out you will also:

  • Share a day with like-minded people
  • Network with people who are well connected and willing to help
  • Get a chance to learn from others’ experience
  • Get the opportunity to bounce ideas off experienced business people from all walks of life
  • Get creative ideas about how to ‘jump’ your business and life forward

If you’d like to attend, please let me know by email reply as soon as you can.   The dates for this workshop are Friday 7th January 2011 (only 3 spaces left) and Friday 14th January, from 8.30am to 4.30pm. The venue is the Glenview Hotel, Co. Wicklow.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a ‘first-come, first served’ basis.

I know everyone is busy.  But the question is are we busy doing ‘the right things?’  This 1- day workshop will help to get your focus you onto what’s most important.  Right now, the most important thing to do is to let me know that you’d like to come along.  Once you’ve registered, I’ll be in contact.  I highly recommend to take the time out and join me for what will be a day of focus, energy and renewed enthusiasm.

The fee for the day is €195 including lunch.  If you’d like to bring your partner (business or life), they can come for only €97.

As Albert Einstein said, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got!” Make 2011 a year of positive change for you, when you look to do things differently.

Hopefully you can make it!

Best Regards,


Ps – If you’d like to go or hold a spot for you please send me an email immediately.
