Having absolute confidence in the 'general direction' you've chosen is crucial to giving you and your team the motivation you/they need to 'implement like hell.' Implementation can indeed be hell if the direction of the strategy is not fully agreed, embraced, internalised and trusted. Time spent mapping out your desired direction pays massive dividends in motivation, energy and faith.
Michael Byrnes, StrategyPal founder
Those first four words are key: what do you want? Sometimes, in the struggle to 'succeed' we forget to define what we mean by success. Take the time to develop a clear picture of what a successful outcome will look like. The more detail in that portrait, the clearer your objectives will become. Only then can you create a strategy to achieve them.
You could divide the business world into people who are good at seeing the big picture - visionaries - and those whose talents are in getting things done - people of action. Wherever your talents lie, they aren't enough. Success comes from melding what you're best at with its compliment - either by force of discipline or by surrounding yourself with people whose skills and abilities compliment your own. The combination can change you, your business, your industry ... the world.
