Are you feeling a bit confused by strategic thinking?
You know it’s essential for your career and your business, but how do you actually do it?
Here are five questions to ask yourself to really sharpen your strategic thinking.
1. What do you want?
The most important thing to work out is where you want to be.
Everything—Objectives and Goals, Strategies and Tactics, should all be pointing to your desired destination.
Do you want to be a high performance CEO, or Growing your current business to the Next level?
What do you want to achieve this year, in three years, Five?
What are your actual goals?
What’s your vision?
Get it all down on paper and think big!
2. Where are You Starting From?
Do a survey of exactly where you are right now.
What skills, resources, and assets do you have?
What are your strengths and opportunities, and risks in your current job or business?
Are you satisfied with life the way it is, or do you want something more?
What connections do you have?
Map out your network and what value you provide to them, and what they offer you.
Write up your self-inventory.
3. What do You Have the Power to Change?
Think about what is in your control at the present moment.
What can you streamline or eliminate?
What do you need to add, enhance, or modify to reach your goals?
This can include anything from Performance Coaching, Building your Network, to developing deeper business insights or Nurturing your Talented Team to sustain your competitive advantage.
4. What do You Need to Move Ahead?
Take another look at your self-inventory.
What skills, resources, knowledge, and connections do you need to get closer to the Next level of success?
If this is difficult or overwhelming, consider finding a Coach who can help you find your way.
5. How Can I Reach My Goals and Still Enjoy Life?
Really going for success shouldn’t make for a joyless life, totally focused on getting ahead.
Make sure you take time to have fun and do the things that give you pleasure.
Think of what Future Successful You enjoys doing.
What makes your future worth striving for?
Write down all the fun things you will do, whether it’s taking 5-star vacations to exotic places or being able to work for only half the year. Imagine driving your dream car. See yourself in your future Executive C Suite.
See what elements of your future life you can start to incorporate in the present and build on those.
Before you know it, you will be toasting your success!
