This post is inspired by the football. I see a lot of connections between the sports and business. After following the match today between FK Ekranas and FK Kruoja I see one more parallel – there are a lot of people/business who get blinded by the current result even the match is not finished yet. And this is very dangerous.
Before going to the causes and how to avoid I jut would like to highlight some of the negative affects this “dream” could cause:
- Loosing to other competitor because you underestimate him;
- Loosing concentration and therefor lovering the total result (not reaching the full potential);
- Increasing the amount of resources needed to achieve the final result;
- Creating the inside conflict among the team members.
It is scary when you think. If you are not reaching your (team) full potential this means that you are loosing. Loosing against yourselves…
