It’s destructive. A distraction.
It’s seductive. It must be. Why do we spend so much time with it? In life. In business. In relationships.
Stay focused on the macro. We don’t see the macro each day. Because we don’t set our sights on the horizon. We must see the unseen. And live in it. But that’s hard.
Leaders see it. They must. And they remind everyone else to lift their eyes. To have hope in the horizon. And to work hard in that unknown world. Doing work that seems meaningless. The hard work is what moves the world.
See the bigger picture. Don’t require others to reveal it to you.
Ignoring minutiae does not mean details don’t matter. Understanding the macro gives you the details that matter.
