Covey said have the end in mind - your RESULT. So what is, or are, results really?
Let's break down the word - RESULTS: Reverse Engineering Success Using Leadership Tactics and Strategies. That ties in nicely with Steven Covey’s, 3rd Habit, Begin With The End in Mind. In other words, if you don’t know where you’re going, you won’t know how to get there or when you get there.
You can’t just start taking actions towards a result until you know exactly what it is you’re after. Your results must be crystal clear in your mind. That way you can focus your attention like a laser on exactly what you want.
It’s the single-minded focus that makes all the difference. Some activities, actions and strategies will cause your success faster than others. It’s those that you must spend your time on for the highest ROI on your time, effort and money.
You’ll never know that specific “how-to” until you know the specific “what” you’re going for. That’s why it’s so important to first decide what you want, and then reverse-engineer your success - the ‘how-to” part - with leadership tactics and strategies.
To clarify, strategies are the big pictures plans and the tactics are the “get-to-work’ implementation of the strategies. The topdown approach, begin with the end in mind, will provide clarity, focus and most importantly, your RESULTS to happen much much faster.
