WHAT ARE YOU DOING THIS WEEK?
How about planning for the future?
While I consider myself a vision based planner, it does not mean that I make plans for one to three years into the future.
The philosophy behind the BizQuack Tracker is to have a vision but to concentrate on what you are going to do this week to get you closer to your goal. Completing a business plan that outlines action items for a year or more into the future can be equated to a guessing game.
Unless you have a magic crystal ball that will accurately predict the future, long term planning is akin to throwing coins in a fountain and wishing for a return. How can you write a plan for a long term future when you have absolutely no control over it? Market conditions, the ever changing political climate, technological advances such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality, competitors, and customer desires are in a constant state of change.
The key word to future growth is “improvise”. That means you have to constantly be on the lookout for opportunities that may require you to travel in a different direction to reach your vision.
The BizQuack concept may seem in direct conflict with the traditional business planning industry. Paying thousands of dollars to create a multi-page business plan which eventually winds up gathering dust on a shelf in the back office will no longer work.
Marketing and growing your business “in the moment” will become the new path to success. By defining your destination or vision you can, according to what the market dictates, select and implement an immediate action plan.
The BizQuack promise is to provide you the specific tools you need at the time you need them. Growth does not follow the same pattern in all businesses. That is why we provide different educational and other support items which will fit your particular needs.
With hundreds of unique marketing ideas in our archives and new ones arriving in your inbox weekly, we strive to keep up and ahead of current trends so you can lead change instead of follow it.
LET OUR ADVANCE WORRYING BECOME ADVANCE THINKING AND PLANNING. Winston Churchill
