As a follow-up to yesterdays post on What's Wrong with Strategic Planning, I wanted to share these four momentum killers. They are found in the fallacy of the "silo builder" in Chapter 2, The Fall of Strategic Planning.  Why are too many goals not good for your ministry?

  1. Too many goals threaten to make any one goal unclear

  2. Too many goals weaken the connection between the goals and the larger vision

  3. Too many goals make it harder for people to have shared goals

  4. Too many goals inhibit good decision making on the front line of ministry

Later in the Church Unique Vlog Series (#cuvlog) I will share a planning solution for the problem of too many goals.
