|Focusing your vision, achieving results|
-- Lester R. Bittel
by David Niven
What do you need to get what you want?
What are your strengths, your weaknesses? What is the next step you need to take?
Forget about vague concepts and loose opinions. What are the facts?
Most of us have plans, lots of plans. And we have ideas, lots of ideas. But we so rarely turn our ideas into our plans, thus creating our future, because little of what we think about progresses beyond concepts and opinions.
Of course, we can never measure ourselves against concepts and opinions because they are too abstract to define. Thus, we can't say whether we're making progress or what we need to change.
Define your goals, and define your plans to attain them (Niven, 2002, p. 66)."
