A business colleague (who was former special ops in the military) shared the backward planning technique. They used it when planning missions in the military. Later, he used the method to grow his business.
Although it sounded simple enough, in theory, I never used it in practice until much later. It was then that I discovered that backward planning activates parts of the brain that are dormant during the common method of “forward planning.”
The results? A recent study showed that backward planning led to much higher levels of success and performance for those who used it. That and more in today’s podcast!
