Strategic thinking is a powerful and valuable skill, one that leads to greater chances of success in your professional and personal projects. It means setting goals, developing long-range plans, anticipating the unexpected, analyzing your environment, and even cooperating with your competitors.
It means understanding and even influencing the correlation of myriad forces that impact our lives daily.
The only catch: Strategic thinking doesn’t come naturally.
Most of us are static thinkers who tend to make decisions only for today, and so strategic thinking skills must be learned, cultivated, practiced, and applied. Moreover, it requires an understanding of strategy and the sources of strategic thought. By imbibing deeply of the ideas of the greatest strategic thinkers of history, they become part of us. Their ideas transform us and we begin to look at the world differently.
