In the end, we can be a player, a pundit or a spectator. We can take part, consult, or just watch.
I’ve always loved long form cricket; the way the game ebbs and flows not just over five days, but over a series. For me it is a great metaphor for running a business. Sometimes you knock it out of the park, sometimes you just won’t see it. Either way, there will be plenty of people who will nod sagely, and either praise or criticise, and lots of people who will cheer or jeer. In the end however, the only people who make a difference are those who play.
Right now, we are all in our own game with the team we’ve got. Consulting and spectating is not an option.
