7 Questions To Achieve Desired Outcome
When I travel, my office books me on the first flight out of Orlando. Typically it is super early because the journey may bring surprises along the way. I want to be able to adjust for travel problems, delays or weather issues. The destination is my desired outcome.
The path started on will change as the journey continues toward the destination. Yet, at the start, you know where you want to end up. If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there. Sounds silly but it’s true. You have to know where you are going in order to arrive!
Help think through your desired outcome by asking questions like…
1. Why are things the way they are?
2. What can be done differently to achieve a better result?
3. Where do we want to end up?
4. What are the costs of this journey?
5. Who is on the team and what are their unique skills?
6. Who will manage the progress?
7. When can we start on this new path?
Answering these questions helps determine the desired outcome path before you ever begin. Then, as you work through the various challenges that occur along the way, you can stay focused on the goal and not waver.
Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward…

The bottom line: Know where you are going and stay determined to be flexible on the path that gets you there.
