Big picture thinkers can have a very hard time finding their place in the professional world. If you feel stuck at work, or in your business, you might be a big picture thinker trying to do the work of a detail-oriented person. Let's look at what constitutes a "big picture" thinker.
A big picture thinker likes to tackle big, complex, ideas: you might enjoy creating systematic solutions to organizational projects, for example, or to design strategy.
A big picture thinker loves to brainstorm, is a visionary, and has lots of ideas on how to create new companies or programs.
A big picture thinker can be messy or "all over the place," or forgetful. You think so fast and get excited about all the possibilities that you forget the next task needed to go from point A to point B. That's because you are already thinking about getting to Z!
A big picture thinker hates to deal with lots of little details, repetitive tasks, and minutiae. Being an executive assistant is a job from hell in any big picture thinker's book.
Now, you might be thinking to yourself, this sounds great! But why would I ever feel stuck if I am creative, visionary, someone capable of seeing patterns and build systems? Well, unfortunately, a lot of us grow up thinking we have to learn to do those more detail oriented jobs first, before we can tackle more complex stuff. And most professions' entry-level jobs are very suitable for detail-oriented people but an absolute disaster for big picture thinkers.
Let me give you a very simple example from my own experience. When I was in college studying photography, I got a job assisting a studio photographer. I was still buying into the idea that I had to work my way up. All I had to do for him were very detailed tasks, for example, I had to put slides in the correct filing folder. Sounds easy, right? Well, for me it was really, really hard. First of all, I was bored to death, but then as I was trying to do the work, my mind would start to question the system: why is this category separate from that? What if a slide could be into two categories, which one should I choose? And why is this system designed this way anyway, could it be improved? What if we categorized by year instead of topics, by client instead of product, etc. In short, I was terrible at this job: I was slow, bored, confused, questioning everything. My boss was one of the nicest guys I've ever met and tried really hard to work with me. But finally he just had to let me go. I felt crushed, and a total failure. If I couldn't do the little stuff, how could I possibly "work my way up"?
Just a few years later, I really, really needed a job, and a friend told me they were hiring an Italian teacher at a local elementary school. I needed the money, and I thought, why not, I'll try. And I got the job! As soon as I started, I realized I was now in charge of teaching 200 students, in 3 separate grades, alongside 11 teachers, and there was no curriculum, no one had ever built a system for this. I had to build it all. I had to figure out what to teach first, how to teach it, how to appeal to different learners, how to match the energy and discipline of every classroom and more. It sounds way harder than filing slides, right? Wrong. For me this was exciting, challenging, fun, and I could do it really well. Yes, some of it required me to be detailed oriented - and I would often forget the little stuff, like make sure to include detailed instruction with the 3rd grade homework. But because this was a big picture type of job that required me to create systems and complex, creative programs, I excelled at it. This was the moment I realized I am a big picture thinker. And I have embraced it ever since then.
If you feel stuck, and consistently fail to excel at what you do, consider that you might need to try something much, much bigger. Imagine being a big picture thinker vs. a detailed oriented person as two ends of a spectrum - and then try to figure out where you fit on that spectrum.
Most big picture thinkers are literally unable to "work their way up." We need to jump to a higher level, start our own businesses, or find an organization, like the school I taught at, that will give us a chance, because they recognize our natural abilities. The best big picture thinkers I know work for themselves, or are leaders at their organizations, or struggled really hard at the beginning of their careers, and after repeatedly failing, get enough years of experience under their belts to jump to yet another company but this time they are given the space and title to work on complex and creative projects.
Are you wondering if you can become a detailed oriented person if you are not? I am afraid the answer is No. Although you can stretch your tolerance for detail-oriented work, this is one of the very few innate traits you are stuck with. So learn to love yourself and embrace it 🙂 By the way, detail-oriented people are as valuable as big picture thinkers and make excellent leaders as well - just of a different type. Stay tuned for a blog post just for you if you are a detail-oriented person 🙂
One more thought: if your family is very concerned with success, you might also experience a lot of pressure and be told you always change your mind, can't keep a job, don't try hard enough, are spacey, etc. Believe me, it is not you, they just have no idea how your mind works. I have a wonderful friend with an IQ close to a genius. He is an amazing visionary, but can't figure out how to pack his suitcase. Some people, seeing the great stuff he can come up with, mistake his lack of ability when it comes to more detailed work as laziness, or accuse him of not trying hard enough. He struggled for years as an employee, being given tasks that were not suitable for his talents. Finally, he took the leap and was able to become the head of a small organization. And you know what? He's achieving amazing results, because now he can delegate those detail-oriented tasks to people who love to do them, while he focuses on what he is really good at: big picture thinking, vision, and leadership.
Take a good look at what you are good at and love to do, and then compare it with what you struggle with professionally. Could you be a big picture thinker stuck in a job for detail-oriented people?
Hi, I have been trying to get through university for the longest time. All this while it was not making sense to me what I was doing wrong but now I get it. Your post will probably save me a lot of pain and money. Thank you.
I am glad you find my writing helpful 🙂
This is well written, felt like you were speaking directly to me, thank you so much for this very insightful writing.
Thank you, I am glad you found it helpful.
Thank you 🙂
Highly energetic post, I loved that bit. Will
there be a part 2?
Thank you, Leta! You can find more posts on the topic here: https://repurposeyourpurpose.com/category/big-picture-thinker/
I was feeling so down about myself. Recently I have been seeing this horrible pattern of missing details, not catching things in my new job. After reading this article it’s like a huge lightbulb clicked brightly in my head. This makes SO much sense! I am so textbook! Thank you so much! I hope you don’t mind that I shared it on LinkedIn. Thank you so much!!!
Thank you, Diana, I am glad you liked it!
An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto
a co-worker who had been doing a little homework on this.
And he actually bought me lunch because I stumbled upon it for him...
lol. So let me reword this.... Thanks for the meal!!
But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about
this topic here on your site.
Thank you mam 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭, we kinda have some similarities, I have a boss who I think he is the kindest boss I've ever met, I always feel terrible like he always have to deal with my clumsiness in details. Thank you, I love you.
Keep this going please, great job!
Timothy Chambers says
What a surprise to find that my response to your article is shared by so many! Like others, I feel your article validates my way of thinking. As a portrait painter, I can envision the completed painting before I've laid down one brushstroke. I can walk into a restaurant with a blah interior and visualize a total redesign that would be amazing...but do I want to handle the details of transforming it from A to Z? Not on your life.
But these days, details are weighing and slowing me down big time. I am trying to balance a portrait commission, meeting the needs of a marketing person (to bring in much-needed business in a new venue), health appointments, and a burgeoning writing career. I. Am. Overwhelmed. ... Is there an app that will help me get things done but with non-meticulous methodology?

Aurora, thank you so much for this amazing article. You have just tackled my issues, I'm 36yrs now and I only just got the OMG! and screamed on top of my lungs and cried a little.
Thank you, thank you, thank you...and I truly love you for this. Best Viv x
You are welcome, Viv ♥ Now go live your best life!
Favour Eledu says
Same here! I literally would almost cry, I felt so warm that somewhere in this world, somebody knew about this and could describe it so perfectly. I'd always wonder how i was supposed to succeed being this way. I'd always wonder why it was different for me as I could see how some people could do certain tasks so easily and it was so difficult for me. I only discovered this problem getting into a professional career and all the while had just somehow found ways to navigate. I didnt even understand that this was perhaps a "thing". I'm so grateful for this article, thank you so much for even being able to descrbe it.
Thank you, Favour, for your kind words and for sharing your experience ♥
Thanks for sharing!!!!
Wow, as many others have said, its nice to have my feelings validated and be able to have a better understanding of why I'm so miserable. This article really hit me hard. It occurred to me recently I'm a big pic personality and loathe detail oriented jobs, which is mainly what Ive had my entire life. I'm now knocking on the door of 44 yrs old, have a family with young kids to support, and am stuck/trapped (due to bills/responsibilities) in a career that pays well but I truly hate. I am MISEMPLOYED, which is the larger problem this country (and many others) faces- not unemployment.
This trap and resultant cycle is one of the most depressing things I've ever seen. To go through life, hating each day, never fully growing to the person one was meant to be is tragic. Right now I feel anger, fear, and resentment. But I have to let that pass if I'm going to utilize my creativity, problem solving, and intelligence to solve this problem for myself. Best of luck to all of you.
"Misemployed" - what a great term to describe what happens to a lot of people. Robert, thank you for sharing your experience and I hope you find a position that lets you shine.
Wow, it's crazy but I am in almost the exact same position except for the kids and I am almost 46. But I am in a job I hate and I don't know what to do or what career would be right. I keep trying things and they never work for long.
OMG! I knew I was a big picture thinker, but have always been able to "cope" with details - and people say I am good at it. But I HATE it!!!
I am so happy to find out THIS is why I dislike pretty much every job I get... *sigh*
Thanks for the insight!
You are welcome - thank you for reading my blog ♥
Me too. I can be detail oriented when I feel it drives a worthy idea or strategy. Like you say, I "cope" with the details as simply a means to more important ends. Its so refreshing to see like minded people here. I have felt alone for decades over this.
Corne Lombard says
I too am a big picture thinker. The article also describes me in detail. I realize that communicating my value as strategic thinker is of the utmost importance. I too held jobs for a short time and only recently realized that I hated them because they were all detailed oriented.
At the beginning of your career, a lot of things are new and having a flair for learning the very detailed oriented jobs didn't appear so bad. Years later, I am in my upper 40s now, I am really struggling and trying different things to make a break through to more strategic type jobs.
My question is how to work with detailed oriented people because my whole world is focused on big picture whereas my coworkers are all stuck in minute details ? We talk past one another. Could we meet halfway ? What is the best way to meet half way ?
That's such a good question! I am curious about other readers' experiences - feel free to share!
The short answer is this
1. It's important that a team is clear on their common goal and that every member knows what they are individually responsible for
2. Within one's lane, a team member can then have the flexibility to approach the work however best for them, as long as they are focused on the right goal
3. As a manager, it's important to give people the tools and resoucers to do their work + ensure they understand what a successful outcome looks like. And then trust them to do the work
4. If a degree of collaboration is needed between detail-oriented people and big-picture thinkers and there is frustration, go back to who is responsible for what, and what each person needs from the other. Listen for what is needed and offer what you can
In most cases, this is enough. If more is needed, I suggest working with a facilitator who is skilled at creating rapport - I do this type of work and having an external person present can be super helpful.
Thank you so much for this article! I came home and Googled “big picture thinkers” and “jobs for people who aren’t detail oriented” and found your blog. I felt like your story was written for me. I had a particularly tough day at my job as an editor after struggling with some complex changes in some content. I am at my happiest when creating content (think writing and social media), but I have been terrible in the admin-like jobs I’ve held and would much rather be creating something! Like you, I feel like I will never get the jobs in my areas of strength because there seems to be no way to progress unless you ace the details stuff. Anyway, I have realized now I need to spend my off-hours creating stuff and working towards a career where I can truly shine. I am almost 35 so hopefully it’s not too late. Sometimes I feel insecure when looking at younger peers who have already excelled and are climbing the ladder.
Hi Alison, it's never too late to do what you love. The moment you start honoring your true Self, things get in motion to connect you with people and organizations that need what you have to contribute ♥
I appreciate this post very much! I just started a job 8 months ago as an executive assistant and I feel like a failure because I can’t seem to remember details. I love the values of the organization but I suck at my role. I can feel the snares of my peers and I feel bad because I understand their frustration of seeing me miss things they can so easily catch. I have considered moving departments but fear that my performance as an EA may affect a move. Im 38 years old and still haven’t found my place to shine in the work force. I’ve thought of sales but need to make sure it’s comparable pay. I do well connecting with strangers and I enjoy representing a brand with values such as my own. So grateful for this post!
Thank you for sharing your experience ♥
This literally just happened. I got in the car and it dawned on me that I am NOT detail-oriented and never will be. I am a big picture thinker, so I did the SAME google search you did and came across this article. I’m 38 years old and I’m always starting from scratch but I love big projects and visionary stuff. I just have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.
Welcome, Amy ♥ I am glad you found us.
LOL, but it still sucks going through life as a big picture person where details are valued. The other truth is that the umber of big picture jobs are limited.
But, when I get to do big picture stuff, its a beautiful flow state.
WOW! THANK YOU FOR THIS LIFE CHANGING ARTICLE. THIS HAS BEEN AN AWAKENING. I LITERALLY WAS JUST CRYING FROM FEELING SO FRUSTRATED AND HAVING SUCH LOW CONFIDENCE WITHIN MYSELF. I AM STRUGGLING SO HARD AT WORK BECAUSE I AM ALWAYS MAKING MISTAKES. PLEASE CONTINUE TO WRITE AND REACH US. THANK YOU AGAIN AND BLESSINGS!
Hi, thank you for the write-up. I can be extremely detail orientated, but that comes from a place of perfectionism, not natural tendencies. It's affirming to have people reiterate talents that are inherent to me, as opposed to the grind that is details.
Do you have any idea of some possible Masters Degrees that would be good for "big picture" people? I have done well in a very very niched field, so I'd be interested in climbing the ladder slightly faster then starting completely from scratch after making a career change. Thanks.
Hi AJ, there are many fields you can get into that would allow you to use big-picture thinking, depending on the company, type of business or position. What are some things you are interested in? I would start from there and then dig into them to see if a Master's degree is indeed required.
Thank you so much for this life changing article. I just turned 30 this year and have been lost since college. I went for another interview today hoping this would be the job that utilized my strength's ( I change jobs every 1-2 years) and I went to the interview on the wrong day. Yes another small mistake that I had made for a procurement role which is very detail oriented. As I waited for the train home I google big picture thinker and this article appeared. I realized that I always create structure in systems among other things and can look at space and things and bring them to life with my creativity. I have so many amazing idea's and I am creative. However, I am scared and want to feel safe. I have realized I haven't been embracing who I am with fear of the unknown and how to use my talents in this world. I have honestly felt like a failure as I see people grown into there careers and I have mistaken my strenth's over and over and over. I'm currently in a sales role because I suck at details but I hate it because I'm so introverted, yet am fascinated with my company and how I can help. I'm not sure where I belong but this is a start. The planner and coordinator in me was actually me creating systems for myself. I think this is my strenth along with my crazy idea's.
Hi Max, I am glad you found my post helpful ♥ Sometimes we like doing detail-oriented work only when we get to call the shots...if that is you, you might want to consider freelancing, running your own business, or fiding a position that gives you the opportunity to decide how to approach your work.
Thank you for making this article. It speaks directly to me. For a long time, I thought I wanted to be that detail oriented person, so I became an engineer (yes, it's possible). I always knew something wasn't quite right, but when I hit the working world, it really got bad. I have been miserable for a long time. The problem is that I won't let myself quit. The risk in doing my own thing seems so high compared to what I make in my detail job as an employee, although I have yearned to be free for so long. What's a person to do when they're worried that the non-detail jobs are too risky, but they are suffering?
Hi Josh, I understand. It's tough to leave something you know and invested time in for a new and unknown path. With both my individual clients and group program prticipants, we work on minimizing some of the risks by researching and testing new professions before going all in. You can get paid a lot in big-picture jobs, it really depends on organization, industry and profession.
Last, but not least, do not underestimate the impact of doing something you enjoy: from feeling more energy, to more easily being able to learn new skills, embracing who you are can be truly life changing, beyond just your career ♥
Poppy J. Hill says
I know I am strategic, smart, funny and a team player. I know how to engage employees and communicate and keep relationships going. I am an absolute FAILURE in my career. I have a masters in Instructional Design and it is very detail oriented. I miss calls because I'm absorbed in my work. I make stupid mistakes. I feel I have so much to offer but have just bombed almost everywhere. HELP.
I feel the same way. I dread my reviews because the current law firm I work in (as a paralegal) needs a lot of attention to detail and I make stupid mistakes all the time and wonder "why didn't I see that??" I finally decided this year if they bring it up, I'm going to say that I'm not a detail oriented person, I'm big picture. They can do what they need to do with that. I'm so tired of covering up who I am, it's exhausting.
My life right now. The mistakes I make are so embarrassing because they are so minute. I feel very incompetent . As a lawyer , I have a lot of letter writing and drafting to do and little mistakes can be quite deadly. Am also an entrepreneur and I love thinking and strategizing about my business.
Thank you. Us big picture people can feel real put out in today’s world...
Nkanyiso Zikode says
I just want to say you such an amazing person and i love what your doing. I also need your advice because i feel stuck in wheel of life.
I am 20 years , doing second year in Plant Breeding , in South Africa . I chose these degree because of its job liquidity. I'm struggling finishing it and worse i don't know how i'm to use it once i get it.
sometimes i feel like dropping out of college but i don't know whats out there for me and suit my big picture mindset.I'm glad i came across these website , now i know i'm not doomed.
Hello Nkanyiso, thank you for reading my blog and for leaving a comment ♥ And I am sorry to hear you are having a hard time. I always suggest talking to people working in the professional field you want to enter, they might have useful tips and insights for you. Whether Plant Breeding ends up working for you or not, remember there are many paths in life - it might take a little longer, but you will eventually find one that works for you!
This is so me. Thank you for restoring confidence. I realised I would be a good leader and have a fit for jobs like consulting, PE etc. Or starting my own business.
I can easily find out causes, patterns, solve problems.
You are welcome ♥ I am glad this post is helping.
This really speaks to me a lot. I'm about to graduate with a degree in international affairs from a top school in Canada but student jobs I've been doing for the government are mind numbing, boring, and drive me crazy with detail orientation. Messing up on small things hits me a lot even if it's simply scheduling a meeting and I make a small mistake. The more it happens the more anxiety and more likely its to happen again. I'm also super energetic and can't always be confined to a chair / cubicle. This has dropped my confidence and self esteem greatly. Although I love what I studied and the subjects were what I'm interested in I've worked mainly in project management field in the government and I feel like I'm probably likely to face detail orientation issues even in my own field... Please help with any advice you may have...
Hi Denny, sorry to hear you are having a tough time. I know it can feel super bad while you are going through it, but remember that learning now that this is not the type of tasks you like to do is going to help you find a much better fit! What else can you explore doing based on the interests and knowledge you already have?
Often when we are in jobs that are not a good fit for us, we can start to lose confidence or devalue ourselves. It's important to remind yourself that there are many different professions out there and it's just a matter of exploring possibilities. There are people who are right now looking for someone like you.
Keep me posted on what you end up doing and remember...opportunities are everywhere!

I loved this article, it feels like you’re writing about me personally. I have felt so lost trying to find something to be a detail oriented specialist in, because this is what society tells us is crucial for success; but I could never find anything that wasn’t psychologically draining until concepts like big picture thinking, generalists, and underlying principles became apparent to me. I know deep down this is what I should be doing, but like you said, most organisations have a barrier to entry because in order to progress through the ranks you must start as a detail oriented specialist. No wonder so many businesses and corporations suffer, but it’s their loss I guess. I just need to find a way to somehow bypass this barrier and I’ll be laughing, but I guess that’s much easier said than done!
Hi James, thank you for the thoughtful comment. I will be participating in a virtual chat on Tue July 9th to talk exactly about this topic + answer questions live - it's free to join, all details are here: https://powertofly.com/career/live-chats/120132-how-to-change-careers-for-big-picture-thinkers
I hope you can make it!
So true. There are so many organizations with detail oriented people in big picture roles, and they struggle and the organization too. I can see all of the blind spots in their thinking, especially their poor communication skills and their inability to make the different departments work together. On the rare cases I bring these issues to their attention, they freak out as they are not used to somebody pointing this out since they are surrounded by fellow detail oriented types.
I'm 36 years old and have struggled with work and school my entire life. Constantly making little mistakes that are viewed as "career limiting moves". What frustrates me are the people judging me on such insignificant details that in some cases, we shouldn't be focusing on in the first place!
I recently transitioned from the Oil field to Commercial Construction and my new bosses are judging my performance based on my ability to write a clean cover letter (with the proper font, header/footer etc.) and proper being the one they like, not one that does the job. This job has been a disaster based on this archaic mindset and I have learned some valuable lessons.
It seems hopeless not having an undergrad from a reputable institution even though I have an Engineering Diploma and just as much field experience as people ten years older than me.
I'm glad I found this article because lately, I feel doomed...
Hi Tylor, I am sorry to hear you are having such a hard time at work. It might help you to read this post as well - it talks about distinguishing from a work environment that is not a good fit vs a career that's not right for you: https://www.repurposeyourpurpose.com/unhappy-at-work/
You might just need a new boss 🙂 There are many wonderful people in the world, and you too can find an organization where your talent and skills are valued, regardless of where you got your degree from ♥♥♥
PS: If you feel you might be depressed, please seek out help - we all need it sometimes, especially when going through some tough times.
The blog is enlightening and inspiring. What a stroke of luck that you were (presumably) fluent in Italian and held a teaching degree!
Yes! Oh my god I am terrible with details (which is amplified because I'm dyslexic) and I feel so stupid because I'm constantly making little mistakes and my superiors perceive it as me being lazy or not caring when I'm actually killing myself trying. I took the Gallup Strengths Finder 2.0 test and my #1 strength is futuristic thinker lol I've always known I wanted to be a business owner, I even majored in Entrepreneurship. However, I just can't afford to get my business off the ground right now. I need any job that I can do well and pays decently to hold me over for the next 1-2 years. I was doing marketing and it was hell- way way way too many details and writing and multi-tasking and everything needed to move at an unreasonably fast pace. I am so lost right now because I'm only 3 years out of college and so far all I've done is marketing but honestly, it's not a good fit for me so what do I do now? I would love ANY suggestion! Any at all! I liked that this article suggested teaching and entrepreneurship but as I said I am an entrepreneur, I can't support myself on that alone right now and I would have to go back to school to become a teacher which isn't worth it if I only plan do it for 1-2 years.
Hi Ren, I am glad my post helped you own some of your strengths! It's tough to suggest any specific profession as I don't know you. I would start by making a list of the skills you already have and would like to use, alongside some of your non-negotiable needs. Such an exercise might help you think of a possible new career 🙂 I would also look into freelancing. Depending on how much money you need, it could be a good in-between step from full time employment to entrepreneurship.
Hi Ren, our stories sound similar. I don't know if this will help, but in case it does, I thought I would share. I am an entrepreneur now, but while getting the business off the ground, I waited tables for a casual restaurant. It had good food, and it was owned by a local chef (not a commercial type restaurant, because that has many rules and restrictions). I created my system to make sure I would get the orders right, and if I made a mistake, I could usually figure out a way to help fix it, so the managers, customers, and cooks were all still happy. Plus, the shifts are generally 5-6 hours. I wish you the best; I know how it can feel.
Kenny Diggs says
What are good job titles for people like us? Once we know titles to look for it can be less of a lift to transition. Strategist or Strategic Advisor is hard to find.
Thanks in advance
Hello Kenny, it depends on what you want to do and what are your skills and abilities. Many jobs offer opportunities to Big Picture Thinkers, but job titles are not the only indication - often it depends on company culture. The same job title can lead to very different experiences. You want to look for a combination of type of work, place within the overall hierarchical structure of the organization + company culture. Entrepreneurship can also be a great path to pursue.
Great post. Me to a tee!
Why oh why did I not have this insight straight out of college? Thank you for a wise and encouraging post.
Thank you ♥
Your words are so encouraging, I completely feel that I'm at a point of doing a career change. What I'm doing right now requires someone who can keep track of numbers and mundane tasks. I switched from Education to Tech. I've reached my 10 month mark and dread the current project I'm in. But last December, I had a euphony of starting something on my own. I was trying to find a channel to build foundation on and I thinkI found it. I've been having such a hard few weeks and spoke to my former team lead about our current project and he mentioned "I was a big picture" type of thinker so I googled jobs for the big thinker and your blog popped out. Thank you for your words! I definitely know now what I'd like to begin to do and what direction to take!
Thank you, Marygrace! Keep me posted on what you end up doing 🙂
This is me right now. My self-esteem is suffering because i always think that im not doing hard enough, and i always do stupid little mistakes. It's not just frustrating but also exhausting to deal with detailsssssssssss. I literally can't. Glad to know I am not alone in this! Thank you <3
Hi Adeline, I am glad the post helped ♥
I am so happy to read this post - it talks everything about me: a big-picture thinker, trying really hard doing tedious small job tasks, but excelling in leading volunteer & community efforts. Thank you!
Thank you for all the work you do ♥
I just read a couple of your blogs and literally could not believe I hadnt written them! A bit scary, really! 🙂 I am happy to learn though, I am not alone and I am not strange for not being good at what other of my colleagues are good at and yet feeling underappreciated for all the fresh ideas I propose.
Great read Aurora! We could literally be friends! 🙂
Thank you, Baiba! I know when I figured this out I felt so much better - I am not the only one!!!
