If you don’t know where you’re going, and you don’t know where you’ve been then maybe you’re on the Road to Nowhere!!!
Apologies to Talking Heads for misquoting some lines from one of my favourite songs. The point I hope to get across is that many business owners start a business with no idea of the end point. Imagine building a business with no plan. Imagine going on a flight and the captain has no flight plan. Imagine yourself (after the Pandemic) deciding to go on holidays with your family but you arrive at the airport with nothing booked, no passports, no idea if you have the right clothes, no idea if you have enough money, no idea what type of holiday you want to have….how much fun is your family having now? How much fighting will there be before, during and after the holiday?
So, let’s talk about Destination Mastery… and use an ActionCOACH formula from founder and author Brad Sugars – Dreams x Goals x Learn x Plan x Action = Success. Many people can have big Dreams but no plan as to how to make those dreams a reality. Many people can be very busy doing lots of “stuff” but not going in any definite direction. Too often business owners fail to deliver on the real potential in themselves and their business because the plan is left to chance and hope. Here are steps you can take right away to increase your likelihood of success:
When you multiply out your total score what did you score out of a possible 100,000? Is there room for improvement? Great if there is, because now it’s time to refocus and make small improvements in each of these areas. Which one will you focus on this week? Write down your dreams? Set some SMART goals? Do some Learning? Work with your Team to create a Plan? Start to Work more ON the business?
One small step could be a giant leap forward for you and your business. If you know you need help or you want to speed up your progress then get an ActionCOACH Business Coach to help you.
