Have you ever had one of those job interviews where you were asked “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” Maybe you were the one asking that question?
If you asked me that question, I could tell you exactly where I see my business in five years, because my executive team and I have taken the time to sit down and figure out where we want to be in five years.
And once you figure out where you want to be in five years, that informs where you want to be in one year. Which informs where you want to be 90 days from now. It all feeds into each other.
If you’re engaged in any sort of strategic planning (and you should be), are you making sure your plans align? And are you checking in on those long-term goals to make sure they’re still congruent?
