Water in the Right Spot
To avoid being successfully unsuccessful, don’t water weeds. Have a clear and compelling vision of what you want, and make sure your efforts remain focused on achieving the intended results.
Bamboo farmers don’t start in haste; they plan before they plant. So should you. Take some uninterrupted time alone or with your team and answer a few key questions: What do I (we) want to accomplish in life and in work? What am I (we) striving for? What do we want to create?
Taking the time to get clear about your vision will make sure that once you begin watering, you have the right end in mind. The late Steven Covey reminded us to begin with the end in mind, but only if you have the right end in mind. I could not agree more. After all, what’s the point of climbing to the top of the ladder of success if you realize, in the end, you’re on the wrong wall?
