When was the last time you and the team looked beyond the pressing and immediate priorities, to the bigger picture of the next year or two?
What would be the value of revisiting that this week?
It is easy to get consumed by the urgent and immediate. By connecting with the bigger picture we may be able to take off some of the urgency.
Today, or over the next week, try to spend some time looking at the Big Picture. You may also want to revisit with the team your vision for the next 18 months, 3 years, or 5. Here's a link to a past audio post on visioning for 2015. Enjoy!
