The title of this blog, “One Fell Swoop”, is a phrase that you don’t hear that much anymore but most of us intuitively know what it means. The thought of making a pass at an activity or a group of activities and knocking them out expediently seems to sufficiently catch the meaning of the phrase. In my mind, I imagine an eagle rapidly descending on a fish in a lake or a hawk picking up an unsuspecting rodent.

When I think of “One Fell Swoop,” I think about the clients we help “Get Squared,” and build the subsequent vision and execution tools needed to reach their goals. It’s an incredible thrill to watch them, with one fell swoop, build the picture for their future and then begin to take action and execute their plans. Often, this process has such a profound impact on the businesses that we help achieve their goals, that they can’t help but get excited for the prospects of future success. Obviously, a healthy level of optimism and enthusiasm can add fuel to the gas tank of the entire operation. Exponential growth, which was once a pipedream, becomes an attainable and foreseeable outcome!

Now before we get ahead of ourselves it’s important to note that after that initial fell swoop, there’s a lot more work that needs to be done. With your plans and goals legitimately in place, you’ve built a high-quality and understandable road map that will lead you from your current location to your vision of where you’re going. After all, like Yogi Berra so cleverly put it…

“If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.” ~ Yogi Berra
