You may recall the antics of Laurel and Hardy in their iconic slapstick movies. If so, you’ll recall Oliver Hardy’s famous line - “A fine mess you’ve got us into this time” - uttered with major attitude and sometimes fury in almost every movie they made. It was always aimed at poor Stan Laurel who supposedly created some messy situation all by himself (not!).
Like L&H, we can easily get into messes simply by not paying attention or having a clear direction. We all see this in the business world and frequently we live it. So in thinking about starting a blog, I decided to name it ‘A Fine Strategy.’ It's a tribute to L&H certainly, but mostly it's a reminder that we need strategy and a strategic approach to operate successfully in business and in life.
It should be an interesting journey. I’ll add comments on a weekly basis, possibly more frequently, and point out instances showing a ‘fine’ strategy or needing one. Feel free to join the conversation.
