No doubt you’ve heard it said that business is a marathon rather than a sprint. And sometimes, just bearing that in mind can really help you when the inevitable set-backs strike.
If you’ve ever done any running, you’ll understand that its both about having a long-distance mindset and aiming for and picking off the mile-markers along the way. In your business, long-term thinking relates your goals and business vision. And your mile-markers are your shorter-term 90 Day goals and plans, much like 90 Day sprints within the longer-term business marathon.
With long-term thinking, your journey will go like this:
- At first, your long-term goals are so big that you even may feel delusional for contemplating them.
- Before you know it, you’ll have acquired some new knowledge and skills so you are able to overcome some your challenges. With other challenges you’ll just need to keep learning!
- After a while you’ll look backwards and see how far you’ve come and realise that your goals weren’t so crazy after all and you’ll start thinking about new even bigger goals.
When you get stuck in short-term thinking, you may be tempted to give up when difficulties strike, so its essential to hold onto your long-term business goals and vision.
Here’s what Jon Dover had to say about working with me. “Turnover has quadrupled, and our net profit is running at 22%, which is pretty healthy, so that speaks for itself. I have seen other business coaches in action and some are quite macho, and that’s not my style, so I resonate with Gil’s style. One of the benefits working with Gil are that she’s gathered a lot of experience by working with other business people, who you wouldn’t normally get to meet in your own sphere. So, she shares that knowledge with you and it broadens your own outlook.”
