Good business leaders are big-picture thinkers. They realize that what they say, how they say it, their decisions, and their actions have a tremendous impact on the world and people around them. Like ripples on the surface of a pond, every decision can have far reaching implications. Most of us see and experience only a tiny fraction of what is within our sight and senses. We narrowly look at a specific event or action itself and fail to see the massive potential influence it can have in the future. Intentional and frequent big picturing thinking expands not only our world and that which we can accomplish; it also expands the world and the potential of those with whom we live and work, and those we serve as business leaders.
