The Forager Firm 4: Deer vision

Deer vision.

Hold your arms out directly in front of you. Now slowly move them around to your sides at shoulder height. Keep wiggling your fingers until they are just about out of sight to your sides whilst keeping your head locked forward. You now have “deer vision” as you have trained your eyes to see pretty much in a 180 degree arc – much wider than normal.

You are ready to hunt.

The Forager Firm avoids keeping its eyes locked dead ahead in tunnel vision – it might otherwise miss threats and opportunities otherwise within its field of (deer) vision. Instead, The Forager Firm is prepared to take left turns and look at the market, problem, customer etc from different angles and perspectives. Always testing commonly accepted assumptions.

Leading to better, more considered decisions, strategies and tactics.
