How often are we caught up in a particular course of action – something we had committed to some time ago – when it no longer serves us in the here and now?

Or perhaps it is even something that is actively impeding our business right now. Or something we are struggling to do with a somewhat heavy heart?

This could be a particular way we run our business. A particular relationship with a supplier. A particular service offering. A particular growth strategy...

We find ourselves executing the same course of action, year after year. And yet gradually, the small voice at the back of our minds gets more insistent. It says “hold on, wait, we should reconsider this.”

A decision made years ago may no longer be relevant today. Habit can stop us from seeing clearly.

Perhaps it is worth taking a moment right now to pause and reacquaint ourselves with the big picture once more.
