myscreenshare: @RisingStarIdeas Hello! Good to see you here! #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: Howdy! I am an entrepreneur from small town Oklahoma. 🙂 #sbbuzz
stellel: @mentormarketing That was the funniest typo ever! 😉 #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: @ginabee Nope, Not clever today, dog gone tired. #sbbuzz
myscreenshare: @mentormarketing WOW! What a resume! You’ve got to be busy:) #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @mentormarketing 😉 #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: @myscreenshare And I owe you stuff, and here I am not working. #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: Tonight we’re spending a little time focusing on the BIG picture. Send me any ?s you want included. #sbbuzz
myscreenshare: @mentormarketing You’re networking! That counts! #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: Q1 Are you able to step away from the daily routine and focus on the big picture? How? When? #sbbuzz
ginabee: @mentormarketing No comment. I can’t imagine anyone goofing off to join this crazy bunch when there are deliverables due soon! #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: Q1 – It is hard to do. I think the best bet is to make looking at the big picture PART of the daily routine. #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: Howdy @bradfordshimp great to see you here! #sbbuzz
lindadessau: Q1 My conversations with @charliegilkey help me step out of the daily stuff and into the big picture. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: The “big picture”, after all, should inform the daily routine. Business should be a path, not a set of random tasks. #sbbuzz
myscreenshare: Q1 I find it important to take time to focus on the BIG picture. It keeps motivation high, day to day details can be slow process! #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: A1 I try to take time out each weekend to plan the upcoming week with the Big Picture. And I look for larger chunks of time off, too #sbbuzz
Patrysha: @sbbuzz A1 It’s something I am working on as the pieces come together for me, weekly review and pondering ATM #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: @bradfordshimp evening to you. #sbbuzz
TraceyHolinka: A1 We often get caught up in daily tasks but try 2 regularly revisit the big picture when we take on new projects. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @BeckyMcCray I think taking those larger chunks is important.Just like you need a personal vacation, you need time for big stuff. #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: A1 the big picture for me is to be Better Faster and Smarter than those following me. #sbbuzz
pmohara: I love the big picture, but my Inbox and to-do list are insanely jealous and resort to guerilla tactics sometimes #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @bradfordshimp I took 3 full days of retreat this May. HUGELY beneficial to “big picture” thinking. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: The big pic is like climbing a mountain. Sometimes you lose sight of it, but it the peak is always on your mind. #sbbuzz
ginabee: Q1 – I try – mostly I tend to forget, though & forge ahead on the to-dos du jour. Seems like a luxury to focus on big picture. #sbbuzz
lyceum: @sbbuzz I am doing that during my weekly review. I will start with a brainstorming session on a regular basis, using mindmaps. #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: I meet up with @bigbrightbulb annually in dec to plan for the next year. We follow up with quarterly check-in meetings #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @rongraham1 Well, knowing where you are going makes the tasks a lot less random. #sbbuzz
ginabee: Q1 – Usually takes a crisis of confidence to get me to slow down & focus on big picture. #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: Q2 from @mentormarketing Are there tricks to converting Desire into Experience? #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @BeckyMcCray Nice. Do you do that regularly? #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @mentormarketing Same to you, nice to see you. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @ginabee Very interesting. #sbbuzz
rongraham1: @sbbuzz, desire for what? #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @pmohara I hear you! The day-to-day stuff can be very noisy and demanding. #sbbuzz
pmohara: @wildheart4vr Welcome! We’re talking about the “Big Picture” and how to make time to focus on it. See @sbbuzz for the ?s #sbbuzz
ginabee: Q2 – I was recently advised to “just do it” if I have pieces I want to write just because I want to. Kind of a “if I build it…idea #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: A1, I would say desire for success how ever you define it. #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: A1, I would say desire for success how ever you define it. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @mentormarketing Could you further define that question, not sure I understand it. #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: @pmohara thank you #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: Q2 from desire to experience? Reminds me of positioning yourself as an expert as a way to learn: http://su.pr/43zOx7 #sbbuzz
TraceyHolinka: @sbbuzz U mean making what you want 2 do a reality? #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @bradfordshimp That was my first BIG retreat, but it will not be the last. #sbbuzz
ginabee: @bradfordshimp Yeah, big picture thinking helps me focus rather rather than wallow. A way to look forward if you will… #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: Q2:I think if you have the desire to learn then gaining experience will follow #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @BeckyMcCray Well, this talk of retreats and mtns makes me want to take a long weekend in the Adirondacks. Sounds worthwhile. #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: @TraceyHolinka That’s how I interpreted it. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @ginabee Great advice. I bet the trick is to get thinking about the big pic stuff quickly, when you start to lose focus. #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: I mean tips on how to take big picture Desire, Health Weath or Wise and translate that into your everyday experience. #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: Q1: I have a hard time breaking the big picture into small chunks I just shoot from the hip most days #sbbuzz
ginabee: @bradfordshimp Yes, that is the best way. Not always what I do, but what I would suggest as most effective… #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @mentormarketing I think it’s like @bradfordshimp said, about making your day-to-day actions stem from your big picture desires. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: Q2 – You can turn a lot of desires into reality. Start thinking of the goal as an inevitable thing, then lay the groundwork. #sbbuzz
TraceyHolinka: @wildheart4vr Shooting from the hip-we’ve been there, but it never seems 2 get us were we want 2 B #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: Q2 – The only thing that stands in your way is time. So start working on those desires as soon as possible, even in little chunks. #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @bradfordshimp Nice! I like your idea of “thinking of the goal as an inevitable thing.” And why shouldn’t it be? #sbbuzz
myscreenshare: @bradfordshimp Agree! The Desire is what keeps you going through the ebbs & flows of sm biz life! Keep eye on the prize:) #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: Q2 clarifiication: I mean tips on how to take big picture Desire, Health Weath or Wise & translate into your everyday experience. #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @bradfordshimp It was certainly worth it for me. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @TraceyHolinka I think I agree with you on that. It can take you in big circles when you could be walking a straight line. #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @BeckyMcCray Sounds like a dream! I would love to take a retreat. #sbbuzz
TraceyHolinka: @bradfordshimp And the headache from those circles! #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @lindadessau Why indeed. We rob ourselves of possibilities with our mindsets sometimes. #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @TraceyHolinka LOL! For me it’s the glare from the “bright, shiny objects” that distract me from the goal I’ve been working towards. #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @lindadessau Do it! Even if it’s just one day. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @TraceyHolinka Indeed. I have personal experience with that. And it is a struggle to stop doing it!! #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @mentormarketing Sounds good. #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @BeckyMcCray Is that a prescription? Can I get a note for my clients? LOL. #sbbuzz
ginabee: @mentormarketing That sounds great. The mapping would spell out each step along the way & before you know it, the journey’s done. #sbbuzz
pmohara: I find best way to get Big Picture into daily routine is to communicate it to others. Whether a mentor or the team, sharing works. #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: if you can’t afford to go to a retreat you can always do one at home if you can get rid of the kids #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @lindadessau I’ll write you a prescription! #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @pmohara Right on. That way it becomes inevitable as well as refined. #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: Q3 from @risingstarideas What tools (online or offline) do you use to help you focus on the big picture? #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @BeckyMcCray Awesome! #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @RisingStarIdeas Love it! I think I can, I think I can, I KNOW I can, I KNOW I can! #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: Q3 – Whiteboard – or a blank piece of paper. #sbbuzz
ginabee: @bradfordshimp Old school! I love it!!! #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: A3: post-its, and basecamp #sbbuzz
stellel: Does anyone use mind mapping software? Or other types of apps? #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @ginabee I just need the possibility of the blank page sometimes!! #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @stellel I love mind mapping but I haven’t found a program I like. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @stellel I have. Sometimes I get distracted by the technology. #sbbuzz
myscreenshare: We use google docs so the team can all share, post, edit, etc. It’s great to see items checked as completed! #sbbuzz
TraceyHolinka: @mentormarketing We love basecamp. Couldn’t live without it. #sbbuzz
ImAfterdotcom: sbbuzz: #sbbuzz chat in 30 minutes. Wondering what a Twitter chat is or how to participate? See our instructions at … http://ht.ly/17W7eg
wildheart4vr: @stellel Q3: I have a few I should use them :/ #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: @stellel Yes I use mindmaps, helps me focus. I created detailed outlines, with dates and checklist too! #sbbuzz
pmohara: Q3 Don’t tell anyone, but I use a notebook. Yes, I sacrifice trees for the betterment of my business. #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: @stellel I have used mind map software, I have 1 thing from hlding me back – it is that I wish the boxes could look like index cards #sbbuzz
ginabee: Q3 – I make copious lists & outlines…yes, for my life & career as well as my articles. On paper or in a google doc…whatever. #sbbuzz
ginabee: @pmohara Your secret is safe with me! #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @pmohara No, that is trees put to good use. #sbbuzz
TraceyHolinka: @lindadessau We use Mindjet Manager. There is also Inspiration. And for Mac OmniGraffle #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: @pmohara I tried the notebook route then I end up with scraps of paper around or can’t remember which book I wrote it in. Mindmaps! #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: Q3 I also have a notebook with sticky notes outlining my big 4 goals. (way low tech) #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: Q3: I have Personal Brain mind map software #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: One thing that has been helpful is backward planning. Start at a goal and write your steps backward, until you get to today. #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @TraceyHolinka I think I’ve looked at that one, can’t remember. @bradfordshimp, I also get distracted by the technology, I think. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @wildheart4vr I have that. Not actively using it, though. #sbbuzz
flabastida: If only there was an easy way for an ADHD person to use mindmaps, or other organizational & planning methods #sbbuzz
stellel: @mentormarketing I like the business card idea! #sbbuzz
kcolaco: Q3 I live by a whiteboard and Action Method by Behance. i also have begun to depend on Adobe Ideas on my ipad #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: @stellel I keep mentioning it every time a mind map discussion happens, but no one has designed it yet. #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: Q3: I also have Free Mind #sbbuzz
scoblitz: @sbbuzz Q3) I’ve been using Yojimbo to store everything. With tagging I can group things together and highlight what is important. #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: @flabastida ADHD is a job requirement for an entrepreneur. You are not alone! #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @flabastida Haha, know what you mean. It would be better if there was just one way to do it. But I want to try them all. #sbbuzz
ginabee: @bradfordshimp Ohh…I like that! Backwards planning…hmmm… #sbbuzz
flabastida: @BeckyMcCray I like your methods, low tech but physical…you can touch, feel and see it #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @kcolaco I use Action Method, though I need to improve my use of it. It is very good. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @scoblitz My problem is remembering what tags to use. #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: @scoblitz Yojimbo that’s a new one to me. I use mindmiester #sbbuzz
flabastida: @RisingStarIdeas @bradfordshimp yeah but once I try something I always seem to lose interest after a while, and that’s not good #sbbuzz
Patrysha: @wildheart4vr I have free mind too…but it just sits…foam core bulletin stuff is all I really use…everything else sits #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @bradfordshimp What is Action Method? Like GTD? #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @flabastida Me too. Big problem. Haven’t figured out a solution yet. #sbbuzz
flabastida: @BeckyMcCray would love to get more detail on your notepad with sticky notes #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: @bradfordshimp I should use it, looks interesting.. combines web and mind mapping #sbbuzz
lindadessau: I use free planners from http://www.productiveflourishing.com for my weekly and monthly planning #sbbuzz
flabastida: Anybody use the “In Place” system? Bought these clear organizing folders from Staples and it seems interesting #sbbuzz
scoblitz: @bradfordshimp I keep them simple – but they sort of define themselves. The important ones get used most often. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @bradfordshimp Similar. It is by Scott Belsky and Behance. It treats projects as actions, references, and backburners. #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @flabastida It may almost be too embarrassingly low-tech! #sbbuzz
flabastida: @bradfordshimp for a while I was using Google Docs and putting goals and action plans in Google Docs folders #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: @flabastida @bradfordshimp me too I get bored with repetition and routine. I like to set things up then walk away to the next thing #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: @flabastida mmm never heard of it #sbbuzz
scoblitz: @RisingStarIdeas for a PC use OneNote – its the best thing out there. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @flabastida My problem is often going back to something. That is why I like a notebook, I can thumb back through it easily. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @RisingStarIdeas I think that is the problem with free. We stick to things we have to pay for a little better. At least I do. #sbbuzz
stellel: @scoblitz I like Yojimbo, too! #sbbuzz
flabastida: @RisingStarIdeas ha ha ha, so it ain’t just me! cc: @bradfordshimp #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: @scoblitz Do you use One note, It just sites on my task bar doing nothing, Do you have a tip to make it productive? #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: Q4 What do you consider your most important “big picture” ideas/tasks? #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: @scoblitz thanks I have OneNote but never tried it #sbbuzz
flabastida: @bradfordshimp and you don’t have to be at a computer…good point #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: A4 My most important Big Picture Task is to maintain a balance between business and personal endeavors. #sbbuzz
ginabee: Q4 – I could tell ya – but then I’d have to kill ya. #sbbuzz
lizstrauss: @BeckyMcCray I was afraid you were going to say that … #ienvyyoureally #sbbuzz
lindadessau: Q4 Using positive language to describe things in terms of what I want and/or as if I am already doing them – affirmations. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @scoblitz Do you ever collect too much stuff? My brain serves as a natural filter (forgetting things). #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @ginabee LOL! #sbbuzz
mentormarketing: @ginabee World Domination is not a secret! #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @lizstrauss Come around on Wednesday afternoon; we’re rounding up calves for the sale. 🙂 #sbbuzz
myscreenshare: @sbbuzz Q4 For me I think it’s talking/painting the BIG picture for the team. Like a long drive, easier if you know where ur going! #sbbuzz
stellel: @ginabee 😉 #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: Maybe I can make a post out of my low-tech folder system. #sbbuzz
flabastida: Q4: create a content marketing strategy for my current company (@kpionline) to create content that mid-sized biz want to consume #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: Q4 – My big goal is to get better at doing medium sized projects to get me to my big goals. Too much time spent on little things. #sbbuzz
scoblitz: @mentormarketing I’ll send you some resources I’ve collected via email. #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: @BeckyMcCray oh you definitely should I would so read it #sbbuzz
stellel: @BeckyMcCray Sounds interesting! #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @pmohara You are so cool. 🙂 #sbbuzz
flabastida: @mentormarketing @ginabee lol! #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: Q4 – For instance, taking four hour chunks to work on writing longer material. #sbbuzz
lizstrauss: @BeckyMcCray Send me a proposal … I’ll see if I can make it. heh heh #sbbuzz
lindadessau: Q4 Misread the question – we’re talking specifics, are we? Now I see what Gina meant 😉 #sbbuzz
pmohara: I love that we’re herding cattle on #sbbuzz tonight! #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: @bradfordshimp I am taking the “Just In Time” approach to collecting info. Only for immediately usage otherwise its clutter #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @lizstrauss Drat. I was afraid you’d say that. 😉 #sbbuzz
stellel: @pmohara I’ve got a rather large (empty) notebook collection, too… #sbbuzz
TraceyHolinka: @bradfordshimp At the end of some days I’m exhausted but I’m not really sure what I’ve done. #sbbuzz
pmohara: Q4 Most important “big picture” item for me is to spend time looking at what we’re accomplishing to see if it aligns w/our goals #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @pmohara If I ever need inspiration, I can always flip back through the notebook. #sbbuzz
lindadessau: Q4 … the book will be the foundation of my next round of service offerings, events, content, everything! #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: @TraceyHolinka creating a list will help you feel like you have done somthing 3 to 5 things only do what’s on the list nothing else #sbbuzz
scoblitz: @bradfordshimp I don’t trust my brain to make those decisions – too much else goes in to forgetting something. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @RisingStarIdeas That’s Action Method meets Toyota – love it!! #sbbuzz
pmohara: @BeckyMcCray Only when I hang out with you! #sbbuzz
ginabee: Q4 – But seriously folks…My big, big picture goal is to work toward doing more of the work I want for those I want to work with. #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: in retrospect tho I know I need to start breaking down the business plan in to daily action tasks to make it a reality #sbbuzz
flabastida: @lindadessau maybe I missed something…what book? #sbbuzz
lindadessau: Q4 I see that this book is going to bring everything together – even though it wasn’t in the original 2010 biz plan. #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @ginabee the way you said that reminded me of the book Do More Great Work. #sbbuzz
pmohara: @bradfordshimp @stellel I keep a personal journal mixed in w/the work notes/tasks. It’s really fun to look back through. #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @flabastida My first post got dropped from TweetChat window http://twitter.com/lindadessau/status/17375337993 #sbbuzz
RisingStarIdeas: Q4 most import task is to Get out of my own way! Be more like Nike and just do it. You think long you think wrong 🙂 #sbbuzz

scoblitz: @sbbuzz Q4) Right now I’m enjoying focusing on the details and letting myself figure out what my next big picture will be. #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @pmohara Interesting. I don’t personal journal. My dad does, especially spiritual notes, and he can look back over the past years. #sbbuzz
flabastida: @lindadessau ok, I think I need an advance copy of your book…similar to @juntajoe‘s book? #sbbuzz
bradfordshimp: @pmohara Being able to look back is pretty cool, and probably pretty enlightening. #sbbuzz
lindadessau: @myscreenshare Thanks a lot 🙂 I can’t wait to read it either – it’s been a bit of a difficult labour, LOL 🙂 #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: Wow – the time got away from me tonight! We’re nearing the end of the chat. THanks all for joining in! #sbbuzz
sbbuzz: And now it is what we affectionately call Pitch Time. Please tell us a little about your business. #sbbuzz
flabastida: @scoblitz that seems a little backwards…I’m still trying to figure out how to convert big picture goals to daily activities #sbbuzz
wildheart4vr: @mentormarketing well that is the problem I am not sure on a launch date yet #sbbuzz
BeckyMcCray: @mentormarketing Only the wildest ones. #sbbuzz
