FOREST FROM THE TREES

 

I had a forest for the trees moment the other day and it made me reflect.

Our perceptions are governed by the environment around us, and if the environment is not filled with diversity, different perspectives and broad experiences, then we could be caught not seeing the forest from the trees.

Case in point: I was reviewing a metric which had moved from 5 to 8 in only a few months. Being new to the metric, it seemed good that it had improved 40 percent in only a few months. Until someone said ‘shouldn’t it really be 20?’

It was a great reminder to step back and see the forest. Strategy time this week!
