In the absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia. - Unknown source
Do you find yourself preoccupied with the trivial, unable to take on the heavy lifting? Are you stymied by the morass of mundane tasks that need to get done before your "real" work can be accomplished? Then the above quote is meant for you!
Work is not always about the big stuff- the glory. It's more often about the little things- the guts. Making your way through one to get to the other is all about having a plan. And having a plan is all about having goals, and a path toward those goals.
It can be as simple as a daily or weekly "To Do" list that you (with or without your team) actually check off as you go along. Or it can be bigger and more structured, as in creating a strategic plan for your organization.
Regardless of the size of the plan, the point is: Get a plan. Don't be trivial.
