Chapter 12 - 25 Strategies for Results
From Getting Results | The Book
If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading. —Lao Tzu
In This Chapter
- Learn how to treat time as a valuable and limited resource.
- Learn how to improve your results by changing your mindsets.
- Learn how to create a more enjoyable path on your way to your results.
This chapter helps you fill your playbook with some time-tested strategies for getting results. These strategies complement the 25 Keys to Results found in Chapter 11.
Strategies are a big picture perspective while tactics are a small picture perspective. You can think of the strategies as guiding approaches: they guide your tactics while you pursue your goals. You can use strategies to help design your approaches and to evaluate potential practices, methods or techniques. Mix and match strategies, but keep in mind that sometimes strategies support each other, while other times they are competing. Ultimately, you must map relevant strategies to your situation. Rather than try to decide or buy into a strategy, find a way to test and judge it based on your results.
What you don’t know can hurt you and knowing the right strategies is like knowing the playbook. While each strategy is independent, many of them work better together. Instead of trying to memorize or implement all of these strategies, simply familiarize yourself with the set and draw from them as needed. One way to get started is to identify three strategies that are most helpful for you now. As you read the strategies, pay particular attention to the ones that you aren’t familiar with, since they might be new ways for you to tackle old challenges. Changing your strategies can be one of the best ways to get unblocked or to unleash your potential.
