How To Win With A Long-Term Business Strategy
Are you trying new things and looking for quick wins…and it’s just not happening? You’re not alone because all business owners struggle with these things. Here’s how I successfully dealt with these issues…
I started looking at my business and its goals a little bit differently. I focused on the fact that I am in this for the long haul…and then I strategically planned my company’s goals and vision with this in mind. This allowed me to see that my company had some Amazing things in its future.
I made this video to help explain this process.
You see, there are too many business owners falling into the trap of only focusing on their short-term goals…and quickly becoming frustrated because they aren’t seeing any immediate wins or results.
Most business owners in the US and Western countries are only playing the short game when it comes to their company’s vision. They are only thinking 30, 90, or maybe 360 days out…but what about 10 years from now?
I understand that it is difficult to envision exactly where your company will be in 10 years…but when you focus on your business’s long-term strategy…you will be able to more effectively prioritize how to approach your company’s strategic decision-making process.
This will help you with hiring the right people, as well as only taking on projects that guarantee your business will have an Amazing Future.
I recognize that this long-term Mindset shift isn’t an easy or simple process.
Especially if you need new clients right now…just to pay the bills and make sure your company is profitable this year. You feel like that is the only thing that matters.
All business owners deal with this reality…it is what I call the Paradox of Business. Essentially you have to do two things at once…focus on the Short-Term and Long-Term financial goals of your company. It’s a juggling act of sorts.
Unfortunately, a lot of business owners only focus on their short-term projects and investments. And they only give themselves a few weeks to see if their endeavors are successful. If they aren’t….they quit and just keep jumping from one thing to the next.
They simply aren’t giving themselves enough runway to see the fruits of their labor.
In this video, I want to encourage you to stay focused on your company’s long-term strategy, as you are simultaneously doing the shorter-term stuff. Also…don’t quit on the things you are doing, just because the results aren’t immediate.
Play the long game and you will be able to focus on more things over a longer period of time. This will give you much bigger and better results for your business.
