1. You don't have a vision. If you don't know where you're going, then you are not equipped to lead. Vision is what gets people around you motivated and inspired. Low vision, fickle vision, linear vision, or no vision will take you straight to the exit of failure. You must be able to see clearly what your goals are and envision how you will get them accomplished.
2. You don't have a plan. All good leaders have a plan for themselves and their team. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” You can't simply have an idea and just think about. You must have a plan to get it done. No plan = no action = no success = frustration = resignation.
3. You don't have a purpose. People with purpose are always going somewhere. A clearly defined purpose will fuel passion and drive you to accomplish great things. Purpose also brings people together around a common goal.
