“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” Abraham Lincoln
Let’s face it, every organisation pushes the boundary of what it means to be successful each year.
Targets increase, budgets decrease, and there’s a never-ending drive for more.
Is that wrong? No, it’s the way your brain works too.
You see, your mind is hardwired as a goal-seeking instrument. It likes challenges (sometimes it creates its own), it likes to solve problems (which keep you up all night), and it likes to stretch and grow just like every other muscle in your body.
What isn’t natural is to let your mind and your team wander off without a plan.
Failing to plan is planning to fail, so they say.
Without a plan of action, we repeat the same mistakes over and over.
The target we were meant to reach last year and didn’t just got bigger this year.
You wake up one day and realise – there has to be a better way.
Well that day has come.
Stop doing the same stuff that doesn’t work
Brainstorm ideas in a way that stretches the boundaries of possibility
Create FLOW GOALs (believe me, this alone is priceless!) NOT SMART goals
Learn the art of chunking time for the brain to work best
Create a strategic plan that everyone supports AND creates results
