How do you eat an elephant?

“One bite at a time!”

“From a very early age, we are taught to break apart problems, to fragment the world. This apparently makes complex tasks and subjects more manageable, but we pay a hidden enormous price. We can no longer see the consequences of our actions; we lose our intrinsic sense of connection to a larger whole.” - Peter M. Senge “The Fifth Discipline”

If you only look at your business in bitesize chunks, you’re likely to miss the elephant in the room.
