As I mentioned before, I recently moved abroad. 🌐The n. 1 on my to-do checklist was finding a new home. 🏠 ✅
This is never an easy task, but in my case it was particularly challenging 😰due to the city’s volatile housing market. 📈
I mean, I wished to have it all at first. 😄Economic, brand new, close to everything, well equipped, well maintained, with cleaning, garden, concierge… (ideally also a cat or a dog). 😅
But I soon realised, it’s just not gonna happen 😏 – I had too many demands on one side and too many limitations on the other. 😆 In the end, I had to adapt to the available options and choose an “imperfect” house that still worked best for me. In short, I needed to compromise ⚖️ and prioritise. 🥇
Something similar happens in the business context. We wish to do and achieve it all. 🌀Sure it’s important to aspire for more, but in order to accomplish something and move forward we cannot have infinite goals ♾️ and try solving all our problems at once. 🙅♀️
Instead we should deliberately choose a few problems and objectives 🎯where we might be able to impact the most and work only on these.
Likewise, we need to consider our available resources (be them human, financial, physical) and properly allocate / use them, 🎛️ and on top of that, be ready to quickly respond to the uncontrollable factors that will come along our way for sure. 💪
As did I, make it work with what you have. Know the weight 🏋️of each goal and decision when designing your strategy. I got the best house & I hope you get the best business outcomes too. 🙂
