"Successful leaders in today's world understand this simple truth of business: without a vision and understanding of the bigger picture, failure is always just around the corner. This is true because, in order to understand the incremental steps and all of the variables creating the shifts, you have to be able to see everything, all the way down the line, into the future... the whole picture, not just one piece.
While the big-picture vision allows you to understand the future and where you are going, the incremental gains allow you to continue winning, with forward momentum. Too often in business we are looking for the big win and have overlooked all the small ones, to the point that we didn't even realize we were losing."
