Feeling overwhelmed? Looking for an antidote?
A friend of mine had a saying he used with his kids: “You can’t tell me, ‘I don’t have time,’ but you can tell me, ‘It’s not a priority.’” That saying has wisdom about how to deal with being overwhelmed – get clearer about your priorities, and more disciplined about sticking to them.
Don’t tell me you’re overwhelmed – tell me you haven’t clarified your priorities or aren’t sticking to them.
Most companies do strategic planning once a year. And that’s the right cadence to do a significant step back from the business and develop priorities. But the annual planning process is only part of the solution.
At least as important is a regular cadence of quarterly strategy meetings that keep strategies on the front burner, provide a forum to redirect strategies and adapt to changes, and clarify who will do what, when.
I cover a broad range of topics in the quarterly strategy meetings I lead for my clients, like:
