You do not rise to the level of your goals. You land on the level of your methods.

In general, we assume that setting goals guarantees the achievement of what we want. At least if we make those goals SMART: specific, measurable, acceptable, realistic and time-bound.

Many entrepreneurs set targets for the figures they want to achieve, for the expansion they want to achieve, for the organisation to run like a well-oiled machine, for their teams to be self- steering, etc.

Goals not achieved are perceived as a failure. If you do succeed, pleasure quickly disappears because the next goal is already set. Standing still is falling behind... competitors are everywhere. That's how happiness becomes a future dream only. 

What makes it possible to achieve these goals? Not the goal in itself, but the way you travel the road. Those who trust the process instead of the outcome, allow themselves to enjoy every moment. Methods can be adjusted if necessary. That’s called evolutionary leadership: being able to deal effectively with situational challenges.

Do you have ambitious plans, or has a recent project not delivered the expected outcome? Take a moment to reflect on the process. 

CompanyWise guides you with a broad portfolio of methods and inspires you to enjoy you path at the level of your goals. Contact us.
