This is seriously counterintuitive thinking in today’s instant gratification world, but here it is: we need to think of our business, our employees, and our customers in the sense of a lifetime. We all need to play the long game. So here’s my question to you: What’s the long game for your business? Where do you want to be ten years from now?
What’s the long game for your employees? Why will they be positively contributing ten years from now?
What’s the long game for your customers? How will their needs change ten years from now?
Focusing on this brings in a bit of double vision: Having a successful business today is important, of course, but it has to be coupled with your plans for a successful business ten years from now. The long game is what all successful long-term businesses do well. So what is your long game?
