Shepherd or Sheep

I was reminded of this quote earlier on in the week:

Without a direction it doesn’t matter if you’re the Shepherd or the Sheep

It’s a strong reminder that if you don’t know what you’re doing or where you’re going it’s really a wasted effort of time and money.

Take stock on the week past. Did you start something that ultimately led you nowhere? It’s possible, right? I’ve been there and done that. Clocked up miles of going in circles. I can tell you that if you have even a semblance of a plan in place you’ll be able to measure progress – whether the initial task is worth pursuing or not. You see, feedback is what we need in our businesses. Feedback to tell us if we’re on track or not. Feedback just to let us know we’re not in the same place we were when we started.
