When we’re in the weeds it can be hard to see what the big picture is. Sometimes in business, we need to zoom out and see the whole thing from above ground in order to see the plan and how it all fits together. I’m going to share how I integrate this practice of high-level observation into my own business and the ways it benefits me—as well as how I make a flow chart to direct my marketing and business decisions.

In this episode, you’ll hear…

  • 06:01 - The danger of getting into the weeds and losing the big picture
  • 12:37 - Practicing the idea of zooming out and looking toward the future
  • 20:09 - What to look for in your business
  • 23:28 - Putting your plan to paper
  • 28:33 - How to avoid focusing on the wrong things
