It’s funny. This week I’ve been thinking of a phrase I picked up years ago from a biography of Dawson Trotman, founder of The Navigators.
Trotman talked to his troops about the need to keep a balance of focus on both the immediate and the ultimate.
Here, leadership coach Daniel Harkavy uses exactly the same phrase to describe precisely the same dynamic. I wonder if he ever heard of Dawson Trotman?
