Interesting how being in charge makes your choices feel different

Interesting how being in charge makes your choices feel different.

While there is obvious pressure that comes with the territory for being the chief, there is also a freedom that can be architected by the following structure:

  1. Vision
  2. Mission
  3. Brand
  4. Customer

Each of the four becomes one side of a square, a one-dimensional “box”.

You are then clearly able to think inside the box.

This is the paradox of thinking outside the box.

It’s called organizational Identity.

It changes everything.

Including what you are (easily) willing to walk away from.
