In all likelihood, right now you are engaged in a project close to your heart. That said, are you attempting to implement a tactic or a strategy?
Implementing a tactic could involve a series of pre-planned actions designed to obtain a precise result. It may even be part of a larger objective, one associated with an overarching strategy.
However, the implementation of a strategy can sometimes be less specific than the previously mentioned tactic. It creates the space, in a sense, for tactics to be undertaken.
A strategy often concerns the long-term, the so-called ‘Big picture’. Tactics, on the other hand, revolve around methods, ideally, ones tried and tested, to achieve something immediately, or at least in the short-term.
Being clear about whether we are endeavouring to execute a tactic or a strategy goes a long way to achieving our desired success. So, are you attempting to implement a tactic or a strategy? Feel free to leave your answer as a comment below.
