How flexible is your thinking? When you’re dedicated to a plan and it isn’t going as you hoped, are you spending enough time rethinking it, or are you doubling down and sinking more resources into the plan?
Are you in search of huge wins, rather than small, steady, positive wins?
Planning allows us to see how things are interconnected and give us clarity on the critical key performance indicators required to deliver results. Planning also gives us the ability to compare actual results vs what we thought would happen so we can course correct.
Are you constantly rationalizing and justifying your beliefs vs rethinking and evaluating your tactics and strategies?
How often are you reassessing your current pursuits? Do your current desires still align with your long-term plans?
The simplest way to start rethinking your options is to question what you are doing frequently.
