Top of Mind Thursday June 5, 2014: Perspective

Top of Mind Thursday
Sometimes to see what’s really in front of us, we need to move back, rather than getting closer.

The same is true of our businesses. Sometimes we can be much too close to be able to see the bigger picture of what’s really going on. To get the best perspective, we need observations that are made from a distance, beyond arm’s length.

That’s why it makes sense to have an adviser who can be trusted to give us honest, relevant feedback. Sometimes this is a coach or mentor. Other times it’s a colleague or peer. But having someone to keep things in perspective is critical to creating a lasting masterpiece.
