Day 18: Think bigger – May 28

It's almost the end of the month and I can't believe how quickly it's gone. Today's photo represents a vivid learning point from my management internship at Walmart last year for Coop. I learned about the perspective needed as a manager/leader. The analogy is between an associate and a manager and comparing the perspectives to working in the trenches and being in a helicopter. Being a leader requires you to see the bigger picture and not getting caught up in the details. Being a leader requires you to have and see the goal and lead those to complete the day-to-day activities. It's a bit frustrating to get caught up in the details and not put the time to vision cast, but I'm reordering it to be higher on my priority list. I've only got 11 month to complete my goals and make an impact at the UASU. Time's ticking, so it's time to spend more time in the helicopter.
