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.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
The thought of hard decisions is often worse than the consequences.
Some people bring magic into your life.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
I used to be all about winning at everything I was involved with.
Many ‘entrepreneurs’ I meet just want to be the ‘big ideas’ person. They’re not interested in the little stuff.
In life people always talk about getting ‘ahead of the curve.’
Something had to get out of the way for everything good that is in your life.
We worry about things that might not work out.
