Fantasies, Dreams & Goals
A fantasy is something you love to think about but you don’t expect to happen. A dream is something you believe might happen, some day. A goal is something you’re committed to make happen, supported by an action plan you are implementing. (from today’s One Sentence Journal by Larry Anderson)
Food for thought: The highly cerebral lawyers who comprise senior management teams in blue chip law firms often can not resist the temptation to fantasize and dream. It is the gifted Managing Partner/Leader who allows the creativity of fantasizing and dreaming but gently (or, if necessary, not so gently) reduces the plan to the identification of realistic goals. In law firms, great ideas are plentiful… it is that rare phenomenon, “execution”, which creates competitive advantage.
