Michael Hyatt on "Silver Bullet Thinking"

I stumbled upon a really profound post today from Thomas Nelson CEO Michael Hyatt, who writes the insightful From Where I Sit blog. He's got four guiding principles for publishing companies (or any companies) trying to succeed in today's challenging (OK, near-disastrous) economy:
  • Be clear about your vision.
  • Reaffirm your strategy.
  • Stay relentlessly focused on your core strategy and competencies.
  • Keep believing in the future.

Not many people really get this. Everyone's always busy trying to out-do one another in one fell swoop. Maybe it's time everyone took a step back and reaffirmed what got them where they are in the first place.
