Winning in business is not always something that a lot of CEO’s pay attention to. While they talk like they do, the follow thorough is often very different. Lets think about this.
The marksman has already visualised the arrow hitting the bullseye before they let go of the arrow. Firing the arrow is just the process to complete the goal, not the outcome.
In business, there is a direct correlation between execution speed and success. The business owner visualises the outcome as a success and sees it, but the individual completing the task doesn’t visualise the end goal the same. This creates a gap between success and slows execution.
Following the principle of “ready fire aim” it’s always more successful than those that follow “ready aim fire”. Fail fast, get back up, regroup and head towards the end goal (again). Failure would not be on your mind if you visualised it as a success.
There is also the misconception around perfection, this slows execution and leads to perceived failure. Doing something is always better than doing nothing. Trying a different method because the first attempt didn’t work is not a failure, it’s learning.
It’s common for our first thoughts to be, I can’t, it won’t work, I don’t know how to do it, or it’s not possible. When an individual has a goal, and they have had the outcome explained so well, they will feel like it has already happened, the only thing left is to is fill in the gaps and complete the steps from the end, back.
It applies to everything and anything when you are trying to reach a goal. Manifest the outcome and live into it. Failure is inevitable and ok; it’s how fast you get back up, learn from it and see it as a positive step towards the end goal.
Always go for the win, forced overtime is not an option.
