Things we’re thinking about this week:
Do you work for what’s right in front of you or do you work towards the future? How do you balance between the two?
Goals are a strange but necessary thing. They exist because we all need something to work towards, but they can be completely arbitrary. But they are needed.
The difficult part about setting goals is figuring out when they need to end (open goals never work). It makes sense to set goals to move things forward (revenue goals for a quarter), but staying on track on what matters to you means setting long term goals as well (revenue % coming from a specific sector).
Both short and long term goals are important, but how do you figure out which one takes precedence (when push comes to shove)? Is this something worth figuring out, or is it more important to be able to step back every now and then and figuring out whether you’re on track?
