Are you dedicating focused time to make crucial decisions that will drive the growth of your company each day?
Probably not. The majority of entrepreneurial business owners find themselves neck-deep in the details of the day to day way too often.
Are you fully committed to implementing strategies and taking actions that will propel your organization forward and enable it to scale in the future?
Again, probably not.
So, what’s your North Star? Can you see what your business will look like 3 years from now? What about 1 year from now? 90 days from now? As the Visionary, you need to be able to do just that; envision the future of your business and work toward those goals. But if your vision for the future is fuzzy, you need to get that issue solved ASAP.
The Big Problem
As a business owner, it's all too easy to get caught up in the minutiae of day-to-day operations, losing sight of the overarching vision. You should allocate your time and attention to the macro-management of the business rather than getting bogged down in the daily micromanagement of it all.
The Visionary and leadership team should be identifying, discussing and solving business issues weekly.
All too often, business owners find themselves immersed in the nitty-gritty details, inadvertently assuming the role of micromanagers. This hinders progress. And as their time becomes consumed by trivial matters, they are unable to focus on the fundamental questions surrounding the company's vision, mission, and values.
Failure to prioritize big picture strategies can result in a weak business infrastructure that will hinder the company's advancement. Consequently, it’s crucial to maintain a clear, decisive, and disciplined approach to strategic planning. This enables you to dedicate time to answering important questions that shape the overall direction and success of your business
Are You Focused on Big Picture Questions?
Without answers to big picture questions like these, your business will lack the clarity it needs to grow and thrive.
No Time is No Excuse
Most Visionary business owners often find themselves overwhelmed by the daily demands of running their companies, leaving little time for anything else. It’s frustrating and exhausting. As a result, big picture questions are frequently overlooked or disregarded as “non-urgent” matters.
All too often, Company owners become preoccupied with aspects of the business that could be effectively delegated to a capable second-in-command. In fact, the attention business owners give to these micro-tasks consumes valuable time and energy that should be dedicated to focusing on the big picture activities that drive growth and scalability.
To make matters worse, many business owners struggle to relinquish control and empower others to initiate change. It’s vital for leadership to prioritize the big picture above all else. They need to recognize that it forms the foundation for sustainable success and progress.
