Don’t give up yet! People tend to quit too soon on their goals. I’m thankful that Dorie Clark was willing to share another helpful tip during our recent dinner in New York City. She shares a principle she teaches in her LinkedIn Learning course, Strategic Thinking, which also made the list as one of the Most Popular Courses of 2020.
The problem: Focusing on short term pressures and getting results now leads to suboptimal decisions for your long-term success. The solution: Strategic patience. Do the upfront research and establish a more realistic timeline for meeting a goal.
Having a better understanding of how long a goal should take will keep you from giving up too quickly.
