Having a vision for your business is essential for success but having unrealistic goals can be a recipe for failure. You don’t want to jump too far ahead of yourself but start with what you have and grow from there. It’s like the parable of the rich man that wanted a three story house and was upset to see the builders were working on the ground floor first. You need to build a first and second floor to achieve the third floor you want.
- Businessmen often concentrate on achieving their ultimate goal quickly, be it increase growth, annual budget, or other endgame in mind.
- Visions and goals are vital to business success; however, equal attentiveness is needed on the foundation and each component on the way.
- Not starting from the beginning is a predestine recipe to fail. Neglecting the business’s groundwork and resources is one way to achieve a business that’s soft, vulnerable and temporary.
“In order to get to your endgame, whatever your vision and whatever your goals are, you need to work meticulously on getting every stage right and complete before you move onto the next. You need to start where you are.”
