The Closest You’ll Get to a Silver Bullet in Business

Big changes in business happen through careful thinking.Silver bullet for business

Big change comes from knowing what you want to achieve and why and how you want it to happen; making conscious decisions and then driving through the implementation.

Big change doesn’t happen through procrastination or New Year’s resolutions.

Right across the country ‘normal’ people began this year with the intention of sticking to a resolution or two. Most would have been broken by February. That’s because too many resolutions are based on what people think they should be doing rather than what they actually want to be doing. Sure, they’re well-intentioned but the result is they’re not 100% committed; not thought through and they fall at the first hurdle.

I promise you, thinking is vastly underrated in business and I’d urge you to find time – and a place – to do some high quality thinking this week. And every week. It’s the closest you’ll get to a silver bullet this year. Or any year.

Once a year take yourself off somewhere and focus on what you want to achieve and how you’re going to it, make sure that you have someone who understands your business. When I work with people it takes about 12-15 hours for someone to understand all the options to push the business forward and come up with a solid plan that’s easy to follow.

If there’s something in your business that needs addressing (there definitely is, by the way) then find half an hour this week to think about it properly.

Think about it deeply.

Always involve someone else then you’ll get even better quality of thought [CLUE: ALL our best thinking and decisions here at Horizons come from collaborative conversations and collective THINKING].

Don’t fret about resolutions. Just think more…
