We are built to keep our options open. It’s how our brain works. Chasing several rabbits (yet never catching any) seems less risky and less stressful because we didn’t have to decide. But, this indecision costs us by keeping us from focusing. It deters us from getting better at the important things that matter most, to ourselves, and to our organizations.
So this week:
- Help your leadership team decide on the three (and only three) critical issues they will focus on in the next quarter.
- Decide on only one primary customer that likes what you offer and where you have competitive edge. Then organize around serving that primary customer.
- And, for you personally, decide on one or two ways that you want to be different 12 months from now. And create a plan to get there.
Is your team aligned and rowing together in the same direction?
