How do you think?
Moment to moment?
Minute to minute?
Day by day?
Is your organization thinking quarterly or yearly?
What happens when you focus on building a business that will last decades?
The scale of time can be used to frame your view of your organization. A problem that may exist in the day-to-day viewpoint may become less important when viewed from a longer span of time.
Moving back and forth between the micro and macro perspectives of time is a good way to see if you are making decisions that are aligned with your core values.
