Technology and Management Solutions Pursuit of Passionate Purpose
    December 2006
Happy Holidays!

Here's wishing you a passionate and prosperous 2007! We look forward to helping you take your business and life to new heights. "New Heights" just happens to be our theme for 2007 — as in PROSPERITY (make more money), PRODUCTIVITY (work fewer hours), and PASSION (have more fun).

Theresa Szczurek and Associates

P.S. Right now the holiday song comes to mind, "the weather outside is frightful, but in here it's so delightful." Over 24 inches of new snow are on the ground and it continues to fall. What a gift — great skiing and sledding plus water reserves for the West are here in this winter wonderland.

How to Build Successful Enterprises

Gary Hoover, founder of, the largest Internet-based provider of information about companies, shares "Keys to Successful Business Enterprises," at my blog,

What's your Plan for Making 2007 Better?

CREATE THE FUTURE. You know that the best way to predict the future is to create it. So how do you go about doing that?

Visualize where you want to go (Set a Vision and Purpose to get there)
Determine where you currently are (Assess Current Situation)
Analyze the gap (Discern)
Establish strategic objectives that help bridge the gap (Build a Plan)
Implement the plan (Pursue your Purpose)

Every company and person should have a plan. A legendary study of graduates from Harvard University showed people (and organizations) with a plan outperformed those without one. Those with a written plan greatly outperformed those with only a mental plan.

CASE STUDY. Having a written plan is a key factor in reaching new heights. That's why we help leaders and organizations create winning plans. One of our clients, Boundless Corporation — a Colorado corporation focused on innovative energy storage — sought our help to guide strategic business planning, market analysis, and marketing for their launch of a high performance, state-of-the-art line of commercial Lithium-ion batteries. Phil Lyman, Boundless president and chairman of the board, knowing the importance of a good plan stated,

"Technology and Management Solutions has provided great value in helping us establish a clear direction and roadmap for Boundless' future. We are pleased with the outcomes of a new business plan, market analysis, and marketing plan."

PRACTICAL POINTERS FOR ASSESSING PROGRESS. Look back on this year and start by asking, "How are things going?"

Recognize that assessment is valuable and provides great benefits.
Read Chapter 6, Assess Progress, in Pursuit of Passionate Purpose for useful suggestions on tools for personal and organizational assessment.
Take the Progress Inventory(TM).
Appreciate the progress you have made.
Reward progress.
Determine what you want to change. How can you fill the gap between where you are and where you want to go? This is the basis for establishing the new plan
