Unpopular Opinion: think more tactically

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: It’s the second half of January and more than 50% of New Year’s resolutions have failed by now.

OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) are one of the more popular goal setting and tracking frameworks out there. With proponents like Google, Intel, and LinkedIn, you’d be hard pressed to argue against their ability to drive success.

Work less. Get more done.

Are you productive? Do you want to be more productive? We all do, right? Just work harder! Put in longer hours! Weekends. Sleep less. Grind. Right?

Working with Purpose

As a startup founder, I’ve spent the past year soaking up information from other founders: reading books, listening to podcasts, and attending fireside chats. After a few months, I realized that the majority of the content was no longer inspiring me – it was actually draining me. It wasn’t until I read Nat Eliason’s excellent Medium article that I was able to really explain what was so disheartening: the content that drained me was all “struggle porn.”

Engaging Employees with Your Strategy

I remember my first ‘All-Hands meeting’ at a new company. As we crowded into the conference room, I was excited to hear about what the future held. The executive team gathered at the front and gave us a standard update: how we’re doing, what our product roadmap looks like, and what our strategic priorities are. I left the room excited and invigorated. We were on a mission, and I was ready to help.

How to make strategic planning a treat

I live in a neighborhood that likes to decorate. We put holiday swag on street signs, we vote for the best decorations in December (daytime and nighttime), and this time of year, we have skeletons, bats, and spiderwebs littering our yards. It’s the most visible indicator that 2018 is winding down: turkeys and reindeer will land soon, and then 2019 will be here.   Outside of my neighborhood, businesses are performing an equally spooking ritual: reviewing this year’s strategic plan, and setting a new one for 2019. The story that we often hear is frightening: a high-level plan was set, then set aside in favor of urgent issues, and now, a year later, the cobwebs are being dusted off, with very little progress made.   This Halloween, we at HoneIn have a dare for you: create a strategic plan that you can actually execute.   I know it sounds like a trick, but if you keep three key tenants in mind, it will be a treat!
