Lesson’s from a blizzard

As I write, I’m looking out from my office window into a raging blizzard. The tree’s and building’s I can normally see have all but disappeared, the snow flying past the window obscures my vision.

However, if I half close my eyes and squint, I can actually see the outline of the building’s and tree’s more clearly.

The lesson from this blizzard is that sometimes we have to see less to see more. By reducing the amount of detail we can see, the bigger picture becomes clearer.

By applying this lesson to an organisation and reducing the amount of detail flying around in your business, can you help everyone see the bigger picture more clearly?
