"It doesn't pay to stay the same in a changing world."
Good business folk know the value of having S.M.A.R.T business goals and objectives (Specific, Measurable etc.), strong Project Management skills, and effective business systems.
But few are aware of the real drivers to business success and change being due to the S.M.A.R.T.E.S.TTM business strategies and drivers.
There’s no point in ‘visualising’ and achieving your business goals only to find you or your team aren’t that excited or engaged in the business.
Can you imagine hearing “the worst thing about Fridays is having to wait two whole days to come back to work” and that it is genuinely meant? It is possible! What quality of life, both at work and at home do you want?
Many companies develop good systems, habits and routines that help them succeed, but those habits and ‘ways of doing things’ can become like freight-trains – really difficult to stop or change. We can easily forget just how much of our thinking and choices are based on past experience, knowledge, systems, and culture.
To effectively ‘lasso the future’ requires a ‘dual-mind’ of both ‘leaping’ ahead like any good entrepreneur (imagining, ‘visualising’, being pulled by a powerful vision) and using the past – good systems and habits. It involves marrying ‘head’ with ‘heart’, reason with gut-feelings. Imagination with knowledge.
