When do you have time to be strategic? When do you have time to take a look at how your business is really doing and where you want it to go?
Do these look like pedagogic questions?
Then the article Jannie Popick’s article “Sunday Is My Day of Work…Not Rest” is a must read, reflect and take action on.
If you already practice setting aside a quality time for “that strategic thrust to future journey”, even then the article will certainly provide a refreshing light on the thought process.

“It would be nice if intellectual ability and the capacities that underlie it were important for success only up to a point. In fact, it would be nice if they weren’t important at all, because research shows that those factors are highly stable across an individual’s life span. But wishing doesn’t make it so.
None of this is to deny the power of practice. Nor is it to say that it’s impossible for a person with an average I.Q. to, say, earn a Ph.D. in physics. It’s just unlikely, relatively speaking. Sometimes the story that science tells us isn’t the story we want to hear.”
You take care of the people.
The people take care of the service.
The service takes care of the customer.
The customer takes care of the profit.
The profit takes care of the re-investment.
The re-investment takes care of the re-invention.
The re-invention takes care of the future.
(And at every step the only measure is EXCELLENCE.)

One certainly can learn from the failures only, only if you know – why,how and what.
That is why failing the right way would remain an art.
