I was thinking about the concept of strategy all afternoon.
Strategy is defined as: A plan of action or policy designed to achieve a major or overall aim.
Having a game plan and setting goals is great, but those are just tactics. If you’re doing these things in isolation from each other, you’re not going to go far.
Your plans and goals have to be part of an overall strategy - a major life goal that remains the same, day-to-day, month-to-month, year-to-year.
