Imagine your week ahead like the first day of school.  What will it be like?  Who will you hit it off with and what will those interactions be like?  What will you wear and what will you prepare ahead of time?  Before the first day of school, many of us daydreamed and visualized what it would be like. The same is true in business.  Some look just a day ahead or only visualize what it will be like after their lunch break or skip ahead to visualizing just what they’ll do after work. 

Restaurant Management: Seeing into the Future

On the other hand, many managers plan a full week out.  Some directors plan a month or a quarter out.  Often, entrepreneurs will visualize years out or over their entire career the same way many of us back in grade school thought about that first day of school.  They visualize not just what they will do, who they will meet, and what they will accomplish; they visualize their legacy and what they will contribute to their family, community, employees, and their industry.  After they visualize it, they break what it will take to get there into its pieces are parts and take actions each and every day – just like a kid planning out their wardrobe for the first day of school; it’s all ready neatly laid out the night before.
