Getting started on the strategic thinking mindset

Strategic thinking: the ability to visualize the long-term while planning the short-term to align with the long-term is a critical skill in life.

Much like other things in life, strategic thinking is a muscle that gets better with repetition and practice.

Here are a few questions to kick off your thinking: 

  • Where do you stand now?
  • Where do you want to be next year and the year after that?
  • What skills do you need to get there?
  • How can you practice them?
  • How can you use your time effectively and maximize it for impact?
  • Who can help you validate your ideas and give you feedback to expand your thinking?
