You have the target. You have defined the strategies. And now it’s time to put your effort. However in fact not all plans and strategies work well.
Some people frustrated and stopped trying while some people keep trying to move on and put the effort to achieve the target again and again.
The same situation happened to me – well, I believe this kind of situation happens to most people and businesses too. So what should we do?
Let’s do some simple math.
Wise plan + Good strategy = Achieve the target
One thing that I always forgot to notice if my efforts failed are – the obstacles.
Why I don’t success in doing this and that? What are the things that cause the failures? Yes – they are what we called obstacles.
(Wise plan + Good strategy) – Obstacles = Failures
First, identify the obstacles. It must be clear and obvious as it is the thing that you need to overcome. Second, know how you can overcome it. Third, time to take action!
(Wise plan + Good Strategy) + Overcome Obstacles = Success
Write down the present and future obstacles together with your plans and strategies. Define clearly how you can eliminate them. Make alternative plans to overcome the obstacles.
Overcome the obstacles. Nothing is impossible!
