Can the Magic of Nature Teach us Strategic Planning?

When we look back to evaluate the last year; we tend sometimes to focus on our setbacks instead of focusing on our achievements, which is not the best way to meet the new year with a spirit of successful aspiration.
The most vital in every successful self development process is the awareness of our own potentials and limitations.
Do you belong to category of leaders who starts their new year by placing their goals and aspirations higher than their capacity? Do you belong to those who set small timeframes to achieve a high set of goals?If you belong to one of the above mentioned categories; it is nothing but a prophecy for disappointments and lower self-esteem.We live in a time of a very fast forward cycle of developments. Maybe it is the right time to evaluate the ways we have been using to put our goals, the results we have been achieving, both the good and bad ones, and the impact of such results on our future.Every leader, every follower, every family member, and every child is affected by this speedy tempo. Don’t you feel sometimes that this speedy tempo is similar to the mountain coaster? And sometimes it is hard to catch up the real meaning behind the process.This is a very dangerous way to go; as people in the organization feel that they can’t live up to expectations. When frustration substitutes satisfaction, and disappointments take the place of celebration.Lessons learned from nature might guide us to get into the right direction.In nature there are laws and processes where everything is in harmony. Nature itself is the best role-model for every successful organization. The board and the members are equal in responsibilities and benefits.The rain and the seeds, together with the vegetation and seasons. The animals of every kind, and the humans of every race, color and Culture.When one of these essential members violates the law of nature, it will cause harmful consequences for the rest of the entire organization.Learning by watching repeated actions and evaluating results, is what farmers did for thousands of years, and this allowed humanity to survive and succeed to develop with a reasonable timetable and tempo.It is the main responsibility for every leader to take seriously; when goals and aspirations are in harmony with the abilities and skills of each member in the organization.Make sure that everyone is dancing to your music, not only shaking their bodies to your order.Make sure that everyone feels the pride of being part of the success through the year, and enjoys the harvest of his/her own efforts.Just take a walk to the nearest forest, and watch the magical harmony of the nature.
When looking forward to make the best of 2018, slow down the tempo, have reasonable expectations, rise up your head, and see each miracle in your organization.
