Last week I shared the difference between goal setting and setting sound strategy. But I’ve seen many business owners struggle even with a sound strategy that effectively solves a worthy problem, because they missed something incredibly important.
They didn’t get clear on their own needs and aspirations and marry the strategy to them.
Think about it, if you have a sound strategy that paints you into doing work you hate do you think you’ll execute on it consistently?
Marry your skill set and the things you love doing to your strategy and you have the formula for success.
Recently I had an interaction with someone in a business I own.
Recently we were making a major decision in MedRecruit for a very important leadership role in the recruitment team.

It’s not a shop, it’s not online, it’s not Amazon or eBay or Trademe.
Survival isn’t necessary.
Is it meeting specification?
“You don’t choose the life of being an entrepreneur, it chooses you,” is something I found myself saying to a young entrepreneur the other day.
Dissatisfaction is a common state for entrepreneurs.
Fear of failure is a common reason many people don’t start things.
Failure is inevitable.
