How Clear is the Objective?

In business and life, we seem to use our time & resources (Money, Work, Energy) diligently and completely pretty much every day . . . to what end?


For what purpose?

I was in a meeting during which I heard many BRILLIANT ideas. I came out of the meeting energized and ready to GO!

Aren’t those brainstorming sessions fun?

When I got back to my desk, I realized that absent was ANY reference to our goals relative to this mountain of Dreams.

Who will be accountable, and how will we know how we’re doing as we “spend” our resources?

Was this a waste of time? . . . I think not because we DID learn more about each other. I come out of that meeting knowing all of the participants and the skill sets they bring to the project, so time was not wasted.

Our next filter is: “Are we passionate enough about this that we will reconvene to work on clarity of purpose?”

So many questions – eh?
