Thinking Even BIGGER

“Corporate America was hurling offers at her.
Thinking even bigger, wanting even more,
she had dreams of starting a Martha Stewart magazine
and starring in her own regularly-scheduled
Martha Stewart television show.
Martha saw herself as
Betty Crocker, Julia Child, Miss Manners,
Emily Post, and Rupert Murdoch
all rolled into one juicy pie.”

The “Big Goals” Whittle-Down

“One of my favorite exercises is to whittle down my “big goals” into five achievable quarterly goals,
and then to write these down on an index card. I keep this index card with me at all times,
and especially in front of my computer while I’m working. If I find myself getting distracted,
I look over to my quarterly goals card and ask myself if what I’m doing is directly contributing
to any of these goals. If not, then I move on. I also like to reiterate these goals at each weekly
meeting with my team, to let everyone know if we’re on track of what needs to change to make it happen.”
~ Nathalie Lussier,
Founder of Nathalie Lussier Media
