Software development projects, marketing campaigns, organizational change initiatives, career decisions, building a bridge, planning for an event, or creating an eLearning course. Regardless of the project (big or small), do you know what you want to accomplish?
Without a clear understanding of what you want to accomplish, you will wander, expend hours of your time and potentially end up with an outcome that does not align with your needs or expectations. It’s like wandering through an intricate maze, trapped amidst endless twists and turns without a guiding map or a beacon of purpose.
Pause, reflect, and ask yourself this question: What is my goal?
Sure, it sounds so simple, but how many times have you jumped head-first into a project or task only to run into an obstacle? Upon hitting that obstacle, you reached out for help from someone who asked, “What is your goal?” Did you respond, “I’m not sure!” Guess what, you’ve been winging it!
