I saw this tweet from Peter Voogd and it is spot on!
“If you have more than 3 priorities this week you have NONE. #Focus”
The same thing is true for your current quarter, next quarter, and the next year.
1 Year Goals, or Big Rocks, should be limited to 3.
Your Quarterly Strategic Priorities (no more than 3) should move you toward your 1 Year Goals.
Your 1 Year Goals should align with and be moving you toward your longer term goals, like your 3HAG, 3-5 Year Strategic Moves, and your BHAG.
Maybe this sounds simple and straightforward, but >80% of businesses who even have 1 Year and longer term goals do not have Quarterly Strategic Priorities that align with and move them toward these goals.
Want to discuss this and how I can help with your next Strategy Day?
Book a time to talk here. Or email me back to arrange a time.
