One Page Personal Plan (OPPP) Video –
It’s not so much about balance as it is blend, when it comes to your personal and professional lives. And a happy personal life supports a healthy professional life. In that spirit, we created the One-Page Personal Plan (OPPP) to complement our One-Page Strategic Plan (OPSP), both highlighted in Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0). To further support implementation I recently created a 14-minute video to walk you through how to fill it out. You can download the form at www.scalingup.com (click Growth Tools link next to picture of book). Hope it proves helpful.

That’s why we’re hosting Exponential Organizations (ExO) author Salim Ismail (founding executive director of Singularity U) on March 26th who will share eleven specific approaches to discovering your own 10x strategies, shifting the way you think about company growth.
