Begin with the end in mind

We have a new client, who has been reminding us of the Covey ideaology of Begining with the end in mind. It got me to thinking about a lot of these business and personal plans and methods to achieve success. There is a lot of value in them, but I think like everything else, you need to look at them for their nuggets. Not everything will work for everyone, but if you can pull the nuggets that will help you and apply them, you've got something.

For me this covey principle is two-fold. Know what you want going in, or you won't know when you've got it, nor will you be able to make adjustments along the way. And, stay focused by continually taking a pulse check. That way you can make adjustments to your plan as circumstances require.
