Thinking publicly about entrepreneurial stewardship

Most of us who are entrepreneurial think big.

In fact, everything we do is big.

As right brained thinkers, we see the full picture before everyone else does. And because of this, we often miss important details.

For instance, when big picture thinkers look at someone, we see their face and usually that’s it. We miss the eye color, the shape of a nose, the color of hair, the scars and blemishes, etc. It’s not because we don’t care, or because we are self-absorbed. It’s because when we look at you, we see you, the big picture you.

It’s the same way with business.

Entrepreneurs see the end, get excited about the beginning, and often hate the middle part.

I get that. I do, too. That defines me. And because of this, entrepreneurs (me) often get an eye-roll from the rest of the crowd.

But again, that’s okay.

Because we are building something that they get to work on (or be a part of) at a later date.

I’m thankful for entrepreneurs.

I’m thankful for the right brained thinker.

I’m thankful for the big picture leader.

And I’m thankful for a space to think about entrepreneurial stewardship in public.

More to come, friends. More to come.
