Change your time scale to get a different perspective.

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.
