When I started the strategy course I’ve been doing, I associated the word with complicated diagrams and a vague image of intimidating men in suits.
I had always, ALWAYS got (been given) the feeling that I wasn’t the ‘right’ kind of clever for strategy. Too fluffy, too emotional – too female, basically.
And that kept me back. You see, it turns out I can do strategy like nobody’s business. I’ve been doing it for years.
Strategy is just where you want to get to, along with all the whys, hows and whoms involved in getting there.
Strategy is a one-liner. The rest is the plan of action.
My strategy for the next part of my life is this:
Live in decadent comfort and indecent happiness by being rich and childless.
Making that happen in a measurable way would involve research, problem-solving, insights about happiness, costs, activities, risk mitigation and lots of other planning.
But I’ve got my strategy. I know where I’m going.
Because I do strategy.
