In business, it’s important to set goals, achieve a sales target, grow the company-and lay out the strategies you believe will get you there.
A clear strategy that dictates the process for achieving goals can be comforting, but be careful not to let it distract you. Don’t keep your head so focused on the process that you lose sight of the bigger picture. Look up and back on a regular basis and remind yourself what you have and what you are trying to achieve. Markets change, customers change, and even your company changes; looking up ensures that you don’t miss new and important opportunities.
