If you are hardworking, aspirational and motivated but still not executing properly then there’s a good chance that thinking capacity first will be a game changer for you. Our main mantra is ‘Amateurs Talk Strategy, Professionals Talk Capacity’. In other words, if your objectives are built on strategy rather than capacity then you are behaving like an amateur.
Why Not Strategy First?
Much of our available materials, our system and our consulting work is directed at answering this question. Keeping it simple, it is just foolhardy to construct strategies that you do not have the capacity to execute. It’s the old issue of writing cheques your body can’t catch. Most perennial losers do this repeatedly and blame the strategy rather than face the capacity deficit that makes execution impossible.
How Do You Think Capacity First?
There are three things you must do to successfully execute by thinking capacity first. First, you must understand what capacity means and how much of it you, or your team, have. Second, you must use that capacity constraint to frame your immediate objectives. Third, you must analyse future objectives in light of the capacity gaps you have and design a capacity building framework that support more aggressive objectives.
Why You Should Think Capacity First
If you think capacity first, frame current objectives by current capacity and design capacity development around future objectives, then you will begin to get unprecedented traction.
- You will regain control of your ability to execute.
- You will be more confident and secure in your ability to win.
- You will experience radical growth in core ability.
- You will begin to see yourself as a professional who wins routinely.
- You will stand out among peers and be better than most.
