FOR WINNING COCKTAILS
“Willpower alone is not enough. If we are to achieve lasting change, we must have an effective strategy. "- Tony R.
First of all it is important to specify that there are no winning or losing cocktails, it seems absurd to say it but it is the truth.
What makes a winning cocktail unlike a losing one is just a strategy factor.
The strategy can also be defined as a project.
A strategy is a well-organized plan of attack aimed at achieving a personal or professional goal.
The success of a strategy is determined by how realistic and detailed it is and how the action points are organized.
When you have the right strategy, nothing is out of your league.Having a well-defined plan will help you take your career to the next level
Successful people understand the importance of an effective strategy - they regularly evaluate and reevaluate their strategies to ensure consistent results.
To determine how to develop a strategy, it is necessary to take a detailed look at the system in place, what we do, where we are at what time we are and what we want to achieve.
I'll tell you about 9 important steps to create a standard strategy that you can customize to your liking once assimilated.
What are you doing right now? Let's take the goal of creating a winning cocktail.
What are you currently doing to achieve your goal?
Maybe you are planning to take a training course, but something always gets in the way.
The organization of money is always compromised by friends and colleagues who constantly invite you to dinners or other entertainment that constantly derail your plan of action and your finances.
Today is a special day because you will understand how to implement your strategy and understand the fundamental steps that will lead you to the goals you so desire.
1 NEED OR NEED
These are the two questions that determine the start of the strategy, what is your need? what's the need? for example:
I want to earn more money, I want people to recognize me, I want more free time, I want to be happy, I want to impress my customers.
It is embarrassing when the strategy begins to be easier to guess once the need or necessity is specified.
If you have many issues to address, you will need to have many strategies. Strategy is a tailor-made process, not an adaptable solution to any situation.
2 REALISTIC GOALS
It often happens that you want to overdo it and in doing so you lose focus on the goal.
Today, more than ever, we have unlimited information that easily distracts us and in most cases leads to confusion.
Staying focused on the needs and objectives is a rule not to be broken and compromised.
3 A thinking mind is not bad, a group of thinking minds is super.
In this case it is important that the other members of the group also have the same interests and goals as you and that they, like you, have the same motivation as you in achieving and fulfilling these goals.
4 COLLECT THE BEST IDEAS
Write down all those potentially useful, writing them will set the second level of awareness bringing even more clarity on what to do.
The most important tools while gathering ideas are definitely a paper and a pencil. However, other tools may be useful along the way, aiding the gathering of information and helping you graph your progress.
5 DECIDE HOW TO TRACK THE PROCESS IN PROGRESS
You will need to quantify your success on a weekly or monthly basis.
For example, if you want to reach a Winning Menu with the need to earn more money, you will necessarily have to record the number of customers and the profit generated by each of them every day.
6 SET AN EXPIRY DATE
We are all very immersed in millions of things to do and projects that are submitted to us every day, setting deadlines formally commits you to yourself, and to the members of your group to respect the progress of strategy development, but even more mornings I live the achievement of the goal.
Using technology in this case greatly facilitates the organization, there are many applications that give you the opportunity to sector alarms and add content in them, such as tiny calendar and many others.
7 IF NECESSARY, CREATE SUBCATEGORIES
Organize them in a list, providing them with all the relevant information they need.
8 IF IT IS A TEAM STRATEGY, DELEGATE THE DUTIES TO ITS MEMBERS.
Empower project participants by asking them to report on their progress on a specific date.
9 LAST CHECK
At this point the strategy is well defined, my opinion is to reread it for a last check, if all the accounts work out is TIME TO ROCK you are ready to put it into practice.
"Behind every successful business there is someone who has made courageous decisions."
Cit. PETER FERDINAND DRUCKER
My advice, start with one cocktail at a time, test yourself, once you have assimilated the strategic system and made it yours, you are ready to create your successful menu.
