Focus On Your Business By Looking Elsewhere

Focus On Your Business By Looking Elsewhere | Business Improvement | Scoop.it
Daniel Watson's insight:


Business owners can become very cocooned within their own little worlds, and if they allow this to happen, their world view and the benefits that such a view brings to a business will shrink away to nothing.


Reaching out from the world of your own business, into the world's of other businesses and the larger environment, can help a business owner to connect to those who can help them to view their own world differently.


This excellent article suggests that an alternative view of the world to your own view is invaluable, and it suggests that to effectively focus on your own business you need to spend time looking outside of your business for inspiration.
