Strategic means using your senses to discern the meaning of a situation. It also means knowing your purpose in life and using those purposes to make decisions.
Now that you know how to use those senses, we’re going to go into more depth into those purposes.
It’s important to be aware of what you’re doing, because being aware of what you’re doing is half the battle. There’s a lot of research that shows that you can only make decisions if you’re aware of what you’re doing, and if you’re not aware of what you’re doing, you’ll be paralyzed.
In my own life, Ive been doing a lot of reading, which means I have some serious self-awareness. However, self-awareness is more than knowing what you are doing and how you are doing it, it means knowing what you are doing, and why you are doing it.
If you dont know why you are doing what you are doing, you cant make decisions. So you learn to deal with the information you are missing, and you figure out how to deal with the questions that you are unsure about. By knowing why you are doing things, you will actually be in a better position to make decisions.
Strategic is the ability to make decisions at the right times, and a lot of self-awareness is about being able to think clearly about your actions and understand your intentions.
A lot of times we think about our actions without actually knowing why we are doing them. This is not unique to us. I can think about my own actions without knowing why I am doing them. I can think about what I want and how I am going to get it, and it will come to me.
Strategic decisions are about taking time to deliberate about our actions: what we want to do, how we are going to do it, etc. The question that often comes up is: “Should I do that thing now?” This is a good question to ask because it gives you something to think about that you may not have before. But that’s also a good question to ask because it gives you the chance to think about two things at once.
I think that strategic decisions are a question that all of us must ask ourselves often. I am a strategic decisions person myself, and I think I’ve found a great tool to help me get started. Its called Meaning of Strategic Decisions by John Tierney. As most of you know, John worked for the US military in the early ‘90s and taught the US military how to do things like write a mission statement, which I’ve found to be pretty useful.
