Ready..fire…aim isn’t such a bad approach to strategy. Sometimes you simply don’t know if something’s going to work or not unless you try it. Trying, then, gives you FEEDBACK you can use to adjust the PLAN and get better next time.
Remember, it’s a process: Plan, Organize, Implement, and Control.
For some, the really hard part is the implementation. That fear of “launching” before everything is perfect, which often means not launching at all. For others, the hard part is objectively going back and examining the outcomes so the lessons derived can be used to get better next time. What simply can’t be stated strongly enough is that it is a PROCESS!
Make a point of embracing that and I think you’ll be amazed at how much sooner you make forward progress, and how much faster you get the ultimate, longer-term RESULTS you’re looking for.
A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.” – Wag the Dog (Movie)
