PREDICTABLE
If you were to look one to five years into the future, what do you see are the companys predictable ways of operating? NOTE: The more detailed and self-expressed that you are in creating this list, the bigger the breakthrough will be. Keep in mind that to produce breakthroughs, one has to have a powerful relationship to reality to whats so exactly the way that IT IS and exactly the way that IT ISNT. The degree to which you allow yourself to inquire into whats so what the current reality really is is the degree to which you will impact the results. PREDICTABLE: Continuous with the past; it is the past extended forward. Its already going to happen anyway.

Pioneering Transformational Leadership

The Nature of a Breakthrough A Breakthrough is: Something that would not ordinarily happen; not predictable; an outcome without prior precedent. Something that you do not understand how to have happen. Something that you are fully committed to have happen. Breakthrough arises out of a possibility you have a vision, but the know-how is missing it is the unexpected fulfillment of that possibility. Breakthrough forever alters the future it redesigns what you now know as being in the past, enabling you to produce extraordinary results.

The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

FUTURE BY DESIGN: PART I


If you were to look one to five years into the future, what do you see would be a breakthrough for your company or for you personally? BREAKTHROUGH: A future that is discontinuous with the past. Unlike the predictable future It isnt going to happen anyway. Unlike a pipe dream, it does take the past into account. It might be feasible, even though unlikely; yet, it is the source of breakthrough results. Standing in the year 2007, report on the state of accomplishment of the Breakthrough Project at your company. Paint a picture (words, etc.) that would answer the question that others are asking: What happened to your Breakthrough Project? Include any or all of the following to help you paint the picture and have FUN! What is your project providing To the big picture To the company? To your accountability? To your personal life? What have been your biggest accomplishments inside of the project? What are you working on today (clients, engagements, product line, innovation, etc.)? . How big is your company? How many staff members are working for you? Where do you have offices? What results are being produced (sales, revenue, profits, clients results, product line, productivity, etc.)?
