At Hipath, our goal is to rise up, never look back and only look ahead.
Recognize & Remove Constraints
“A first-rate Planner is never in a hurry, never late and never worries about past mistakes.”
When something does not work, recognize it, adjust it, change it, or stop it altogether…then don’t look back. It’s our nature to hate being wrong, and yet mistakes often teach us the most. Learn to recognize constraints. Thomas Edison was wrong 1,800 times before getting the light bulb right. Edison’s greatest strength was that he was not afraid to be wrong. He recognized the constraints and removed them. Scrutinize your forward direction for your business, recognize and remove constraints and then create a plan that addresses the changes required for success. Don’t put it off………………
“Planning is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.”
Business owners must develop the talent to look ahead. It is essential if they want their business to succeed. It is important for a business person to be aggressive in Looking Ahead and planning for the future. It’s important to ask the hard questions. If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never get it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. Looking ahead can open doors to better understanding of how to plan for the future. It gives you a head start over your competitors and prepares you for upcoming options available in your industry. Develop goals for the future of your business today. You can choose to look back, or you can choose to look forward. Remember what Lot’s wife did.” Lot’s wife looked back, not forward and what did that get her?
“If you don’t step forward, you will always be in the same place.”
By planning, we become more focused on seeing the bigger picture.
With Planning, you bring your team together to share [IN] the company vision for the future. It allows the entire team to be involved in the over-all direction of the company.
By planning, we have a much better understanding of how to budget our finances and thus reduce one of the most stressful and time consuming aspects of running a business.
By planning, you gain the most important advantage…greater independence as a company.
