Out of the Trenches
Because we all know you work a 40-hour week, right? (Cough, cough.)
Most people get stuck in the trenches and find it hard to get their heads out of the details to look around. But starting with the bigger picture — or at least visiting it periodically — might be a real game-changer. You'll be better equipped to respond to "what if" questions, build buy-in for change when you see it coming and understand how your situation compares with others more realistically.
