“If I continue to believe as I have always believed, I will continue to think as I have always thought. If I continue to think as I have always thought, I will continue to act as I have always acted. If I continue to act as I have always acted, I will continue to get what I have always gotten.” – Unknown
Powerful words that equate to a simple formula:
Beliefs drive thoughts. Thoughts drive actions. Actions drive results.
A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to lay out a future vision for the Goizueta Business School.
The vision was not concocted in my own head, but was born from scores of conversations, small group meetings, focus groups, and faculty/staff retreats where I simply asked the question:
“What results do you want to create for our school?”
It’s not an easy question for any organization to wrestle with, but it is perhaps the most important one a leader can ask. If we do not have a vision for the future then, frankly, we have no future.
