Key choices in ensuring success in change

The vast majority of the time life goes according to plan providing we do what we know we should do.

Plans start with an authentic picture of where we are now (current reality) and an equally genuine picture of where we want to go (possibility).

Our next step is to get crystal clear of why (our motive, intention, purpose, reason) we want to move from current reality to possibility.

Lack of clarity on why generally means a hazy how and therefore poor execution.

Next is to create our how we will get where we are going i.e. strategy. Strategy is our compass.

Next we determine (and agree when other people are involved) on who will do what and when.

In the small percentage of the time when you are doing what you know you should be doing and things don’t go according to plan, you have choices to make.

In the gap between what happens and how you respond is choice. Sometimes your choosing moment is a millisecond and other times it varies. Here is the key you have a choice.

Could it be that making the right choices for us in the gap moment between what happens and our response, has a lot to do with how much we are actually doing what we know we should be doing? My answer is yes. I would value your thoughts.
