Backwards strategy works:
…If you begin with today and try to turn it into tomorrow, you will be constrained by maximum growth and change permitted by today’s organization and resources. But if you begin with the picture of the future, you can then “work backwards” to determine what has to be changed today in order to reach tomorrow.
Alan Weiss in his book “The Unofficial Guide to Power Managing”
Big projects can be daunting to start. What needs to be done? What are the priorities? What resources will we need?
This approach has both logistic and emotional benefits… By creating an image of the future you won’t be hampered why what you have, instead you’ll create what you need.
