It states that for every 1 degree your off course you are – over a period of 60 miles the plane will land 1 mile off of the intended destination.
The rule is not perfect, but it is directionally correct.
Do you have a strong plan for this week?
Is it aligned with where you want to go?
All of those dreams, plans, desired outcomes, weekly targets get translated into real action on a weekly and daily basis.
A series of overlapping inputs – calls, emails, meetings… and a bit of deep work move the needle forward every week.
It is where the rubber hits the road.
And it is here we often expend a lot of energy for very little value.
The glorification of busyness becomes real. Myopia sets in and we see the short term as too important. Proximity Bias gives undue importance to what’s near.
keeping up with the unending notifications becomes an end to itself.
The most difficult thing to get right every week is alignment, then focus, and then the environment to tackle meaningful progress.
1. Remind yourself of what’s important often – make it visual.
2. Ensure the weekly and daily outputs are clear
3. Match the actions that need to get done with the energy required.
Stay focused on where you’re headed and you’ll land where you want.
