Mark Murphy on How to Get to Where You Want to Be

To Mark Murphy, the key to success is visualization, for personal goals as well as business goals. If you’re training for a marathon, it’s helpful to imagine crossing the finish line. The same is true for business. If the company has goals, it’s up to the managers to paint a picture of success that inspires the employees, gets them motivated, and helps them meet that goal.
