There is no success without succession: Every start has a first step, followed by a second, then a third, and more. Your plan may launch slowly and build increasing momentum — moving it the right direction often quickly becomes self-fulfilling prophecy. This is a hallmark of a great plan.
Plans are dreams with a deadline. Powerful plans gain their power from being connected to action today. This is what makes the Cornerstone PATH so effective: it helps you take action and gain traction. Our planning process connects your ultimate vision/goals to the project’s launch right now. Even more, it helps you identify critical first steps and milestones, as well as measures of “on track” or “off track.” Great plans have feedback loops built into them, providing a GPS to navigate through inevitable changes and unexpected turns that occur during every project’s execution.
Vision and plan are certainly essential ingredients, but we are shaped by what we did yesterday and defined by what we do today. It is easy for project leaders to confuse activity with momentum; thus, we serve clients by helping them take action that’s based on priorities, not merely urgency. So the bright choices today lead to brilliant results tomorrow.
