10,000 Foot View

Sometimes when you step back the problem becomes very clear. 

We’ve all come to love the phrase 10,000 foot view.

It is the universal trigger to get out of the weeds and take a broader look at a situation.

Yes with the one million things that are hitting us each day - sometimes just trying to grab a hold of something - we drop into the mode of - I just need to get this one thing done and then hopefully this batch of work will be over.


They say the devil is in the details.

But a true vision starts in the clouds.

It starts at the 10,000 foot view.

It jumps from cloud to cloud.

From blue sky to blue sky.


Sure there are times you need to deep dive into your vision to make sure it stays on track.

But the big think - the think that changes your life.

Is that one thought.

That pie in the sky.


So if you're down in the weeds.

If you're frustrated.

Put your head up in the clouds and get a breath of fresh air.
