You Need A Telescope And A Microscope
In business you need a telescope for one eye and a microscope for the other.
You need a telescope so that you can look into the future to see where you would like to be somewhere down the line. Unfortunately, the world of business is changing so rapidly that it’s difficult to project a year into the future never mind five years.
The microscope lets you look in detail at what’s happening right now. It allows you to observe our turbulent economy in minute detail so that you can exploit immediate opportunities and manage emerging threats.
It’s hard to look through a microscope and a telescope at the same time without getting a headache but the pain is worth it. It gives you a whole new perspective on the present and the future.
