“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Said Will Durant, paraphrasing Aristotle. Turn it on its head. What are you NOT repeatedly doing that needs to be done to achieve your strategic goals this year?
Because achieving those goals requires you and your team to work steadily towards them. Being distracted by tasks that seem urgent, or just a quick thing in between, can add up to a big detour from your goals.
Take stock of how you are allocating your team’s resources and the tasks that you are asking them to focus on. Extrapolate that to the rest of the year. What does that picture look like? Is it the picture that you want?
If not, now may be the time to refresh your priorities and reallocate your resources.
So that what you repeatedly do will bring you closer to your goals for this year.
