Don’t fall out of windows

Process

When somebody “accidentally” falls out of a window at a hospital or any ofter building after criticizing the government and their policy, actions – or lack thereof – you could argue that it could be seen as a ‘clever’ way of removing an opposing voice for good.

It is a tactic. A morbid but…eehhm…efficient one.

When suddenly people – in plural – start falling out of windows, and there is a common denominator in their background stories it starts to look more like a strategy than a tactic.

A poor strategy that is. Because it becomes totally evident to even the blind what is really going on. And then you have put yourself in a worse position.

The point?

That even if you’re efficient at the tactical level in your daily job, you are not necessarily by any means a good strategist. Rather the opposite.

Why?

Because you’re so caught up in what’s efficient in the moment, short term, that you completely miss out on the bigger, longer term picture.

And here is a news flash:

It is always the bigger, long term picture that decides how others look at and interact with you and your company.

So if you want to be good at tactics and strategy, bet on being good at strategy first.
