I asked for help.
The help and love showed up from all over the place.
The goal was not met.
One solution: Do a gap analysis of the situation.
- The first gap you analyze is the goal gap. The goal gap is a simple question “Is the goal one that I really want to achieve?”
- If the answer is yes, then you do step two of a gap analysis: you measure the original goal against the result and determine the ‘gap’.
- Next, you reset the goal to fill the gap and take the necessary action or actions to reach the goal.
And always remember the words of Henry Ford: Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.
