Stepping stones


So what’s the plan?

How will you get from here to there?

Where is there?

Who do you need on the journey?

What will they contribute?

How does it all fit together?

What are the milestones – that let you know you’re making progress?

What are the stepping stones – where you’ll take a breath and celebrate the chunky lumps of progress?

When do you start?

What resources will you chew through?

How long will it take?

What will you not do so you can do what you say you’re going to do?

How will you keep everyone on track and moving together?

Man, there’s a lot to worry about.

So many variables.


So … simplify.

Where is the destination and what are the stepping stones?

How will you get to the first one?

Get on with it.

Skippy strategy: You don’t need to see all the way. Take the next step.
