Of every day


There is an element of every day that is the day-to-day. It starts with the inbox and the phone messages, includes the walk-ins and the walk-abouts, and ends with all the little things that get in the way of doing the big things. In other words, keeping on top of things. In other words, fire fighting. In other words, life.

Then there are the big things. The things you know you need to do to move the dial on the products you’re working on, the services you’re working and building the organisation you’re working on. The kind of big things that will make a difference on an annual scale rather than a daily scale. That you’ll remember in the annual review. That make an actual difference.

Skippy strategy: Don’t let the little things you have to do get in the way of the big things you want to do.
