In my experience entrepreneurs are usually optimistic; they see opportunity where others see obstacles. They are also aspirational.
And as a result many entrepreneurs confuse goal setting with creating strategy.
They are not the same.
While your ‘BHAG’ might be cool to talk about with your friends, and it might be motivational to you, the market doesn’t care about it.
Good strategy is about solving a problem that people need solving. Do that better than anyone else and you give yourself a strategic advantage.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
The thought of hard decisions is often worse than the consequences.
Some people bring magic into your life.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
I used to be all about winning at everything I was involved with.
Many ‘entrepreneurs’ I meet just want to be the ‘big ideas’ person. They’re not interested in the little stuff.
In life people always talk about getting ‘ahead of the curve.’
Something had to get out of the way for everything good that is in your life.
We worry about things that might not work out.
