All the time in business I hear people saying “I’m a big picture person,” or “I’m a detail person.”
The problem with this is that neither ‘type’ can effectively run and grow a business.
If you’re only caught up in the detail, if you’re only looking one foot in front of you, then you could easily be walking towards a cliff and not even know it.
If you’re only looking way into the future, if you’re running along with your eyes on the stars, there’s a high chance that you’ll trip on the small obstacles that are always present.
The key skill to develop is to flick between the detail and the big picture. One will come naturally, the other will take discipline, so schedule the time and make both happen.
Sometimes, I don’t have anything to add.

How often do you hear the statement, ‘there just aren’t enough hours in the day”?
