Begin With The End In Mind
We’ve all heard the phrase begin with the end in mind, but have you thought about this for your business?
You actually already do this all the time; we don’t get in our car without having the end in mind, to meet a client, to go to the supermarket, an appointment, sporting event….
Wherever you decide that you are going... you make a decision before you get in the car...you have the end in mind.
You want to do this in your business…in your life…
You want to do this every day…begin with the end in mind.
We can create an ideal day, an ideal week, an ideal month, and year….
You may want to have greater efficiency and flow in your business, greater profits, more time with family, kids, and travel. You can have success in all you do. Decide what those goals are so you can make steps to achieve them.
Stephen Covey speaks about a particular vision of beginning with the end in mind and he says – Remember Pro- Activity means you are the programmer, you get to decide what matters to you, what you are going to put your attention and your actions on.
1. Understand that you are the programmer whether you know it or not, whether you choose to be aware of it or not. You program either by design or by default
2. So decide to Write the program, write what you would love to create
3. Work the program, every single day sharpen it up, and tune in and turn up the volume to what you want, pay attention –
Because if I am heading to NY from Colorado I am going to have to make some stops along the way. And every day I am going to check my GPS and all the while even while I am enjoying the scenery and every day I know where I am headed is one place…
Wherever you are headed it should be with the end in mind.
