Goal or No Goal?

There is often a debate over whether to set specific goals or stay nimble and just respond to market forces. Behind the debate is the pursuit of perfection - a foolish effort. 

Of course you want your team to set measurable goals that will help direct their daily effort. But you also want them to be ready to come off the goal and pursue a new opportunity when it appears. 

This is where you come in. As their manager, you should be the first to call an audible. And if the play fails, be the first to shout "No problem! We'll get 'em next time!" This is the reason coaches are on the sidelines, where they can see the field, and captains are at the helm to see the horizon. 
By the way, where are you positioned today? 

Be encouraged,
