What is this ‘perfect’ thing about?
You develop a great idea, perfect distribution, perfect manufacturing, perfect marketing but your product never does take off. Take some time to come to grips with the realism.
You want to create a new system within the organization, you do all the things. You communicate clearly answer all questions. Delegate clearly etc. And your idea doesn’t catch on. People don’t get involved.
Look at the imperfection in the people and the situation that might speak volumes to where you went wrong.You go to a group meeting and everyone sits at the table and talks and talks. You come up with a nice perfect plan, but the SIMPLE imperfections in day to day living quickly derail the perfect plan you created
I saw a thought once,
‘An fool can live through a crisis, its the day to day living that kills them.’ Winston Churchhill
Now before we all lose any toes when we sit down to do some planning, expect some areas will be dictated by imperfections. They will get a little messy or even a little gray, but its up to you and your plan to make sense of it all, and keep your focus on the right things.
One of the world’s most successful CEO’s Jack Welch said something to the effect of
See reality as it is not as it was or as it will be or as you think it should be….See reality as it is. And make decisions based on reality.
P.S. check out some of my first ever posts which happened to be also on REALISM. These posts really generated alot more comment via my email inbox that I ever expected.
