Planning and Execution: Establishing Plans Part 2

Successful managers know how to establish effective plans and develop effective processes. They also know how to set up processes that carry out those plans. Effective leaders begin the planning process with the organization's vision and goals and end up with specific plans to achieve these goals.

We have all been guilty at some point or another of analysis paralysis. Taking action can seem particularly hard when you're facing many moving parts. While some amount of planning, preparation, and deliberation is important, the reality is that taking action - even small ones - will have a compounding effect to carry you through the big decisions and plans. Sometimes the reality is that done is better than perfect.

“I had literally been searching for something like Done Desk for over 5+ yrs.

One of the most impressive things about Done Desk is the team. I greatly appreciate using a product where the founder is open & appreciative of feedback. How rare is that? And the communication goes two ways – with my feedback, they let me know the direction of growth they are focused on. In addition, the Done Desk team is exceptionally responsive, often within minutes of questions I have and this makes all the difference in the world.”
