Navigating Route 66 is like running a new business. You know where you want to go, but you don’t always know the road to take or where to turn.
You can get all the maps, photo guides, and GPS directions in the world (read: advice) and still make a wrong turn (read: mistake).
The key in navigation is to focus on checking and double checking—making quick correction when needed.
As we drove Route 66, me in the navigation seat, I juggled two map books and a GPS and a dining guide plus various brochures we’d picked up along the way. At times, when alternate routes got too jumbled up with the main road, we had to pull over (thanks, guys at the fire station in Edmund).
It’s the same in business; at least, it is in a start up. You have to know where you want to go. You have to know that you can get there. You may need a little help along the way, but others have done it before, and survived to tell the tale.
All you have to do is keep going.
