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.

Seth’s Blog: Gift wrapped.
“Too often, we overlook the value of imagination and dreams and the _____. fill in the blank and we can prove we did a good job.” is gauntlet the author has thrown to all of us.
If you choose attitude, as is indicated by Shri Tanmay Vora, in his blog-post “the Attitude of Quality”, then ‘people [and their attitude] are at the core of excellence.’
I would put my bet on Commitment [or Determination] of Action. A dream not supported by a determined action, arising from a dogged commitment remains a dream only, and not the reality of success.
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.)
