Your budget is not your growth plan

Although I've declared who I'm voting for in Australia's General Election next month (see previous post) I admit to frustration at my preferred leader continually referring to the countries budget as the plan for growth.

Budgets aren't plans. They're simply how we intend to pay for our plans.

If you're just focused on economics in your business I can promise you worse numbers than you're predicting.

Instead focus on who you and your people need to become first of all and then what you'll do, to move from where you are to where you want to be. Do this and the numbers will take care of themselves.

By all means have a budget. It's good business practice. It's not and never should be your focus. And it's most certainly not your plan for growth.

Be remarkable.
