A huge part of advancing forward whether in your career, your business or your life …. is strategy.
Working out your next move.
But it’s not as easy as it sounds, especially if you’re going through a crappy time!
The secret, though, is to give subjectivity a rest. Allow your emotions some time out!
Work that pre-frontal cortex! Become a little more objective instead!
Look at things from all angles. Ask for help. For advice.
Tap someone else’s brain for a change to get some new ideas.
Check out the pros, cons and weigh up the in-betweens.
Strategy is nothing more than planning.
Knowing your end goal is one thing, but knowing the few things that must have to happen to get you there is another thing.
Those CSFs, processes, game-plans, or 90 day projects. Call them whatever!
Just work out the small steps you need to take for each one of them,
And as tiny as they may seem to you at the time,
“Make your move!”
