What do you really want in 2016?

It’s been quite instructive to note how often people either don’t know or have not articulated to themselves what they truly want in any given situation. We don’t promise that we can always get what our clients want (and sometime it might not be good for anyone if we could!) but we do think it is worth getting clarity on what you want and why. At least from that position you can think rationally about the outcomes you want to achieve, whether these make sense overall and the steps to get there. If we know what we want, then we can be clear and specific in going after it.
