Whether you are running a team or you are an individual contributor it is common for most of us to focus on the numbers. In other words we are given a target, whether this be a financial return for the period or a number of sales required. The challenge is that when we focus on the numbers the vision tends to get lost.
The ideal situation is to remain focused on the vision and then the numbers will be be achieved.
Why? Because this is another indication of a growth mentality rather than a goal mentality. When keeping the overall vision top of mind everyone involved is aware of what is expected and buys into the vision. This will ensure that the goals (numbers) are aligned to the vision and therefore will be achieved.
Think about this as you go through you day and see where your focus is being directed.
