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.
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.
We are all a combination of our experiences of the past.
We don’t need to detach from our painful past.
The you today is different from the you a year ago.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
