How to succeed in life without being trying

alienredThinking and planning ahead is a prerequisite to a successful project. BUT there is an additional leadership tip that will help you keep your sanity: Letting Go.

Here’s the process in a nutshell:

1. Visualize the ultimate outcome.

2. Identify what you need to get there from here.

3. Fill in the details (whose help do you need, what needs to be done when, etc.).

4. Intend that it is more important that the outcome succeed, than that it fail.

5. Now… let go.

Your role is to keep the ultimate outcome clear, and to go with the flow of everything that happens between now and then. It’s all part of the process.
