The article discusses the zigzag pattern for one's personal and organizational management choices and perspectives. On the personal level, the zigzag pattern means looking for one's foresights on a project or work worth pursuing, knowing if one is still enjoying, and identifying if a situation is still legally, ethically, and morally sound. On the business level, the zigzag approach refers to knowing how a project affects the environment and becomes advantageous, monitoring day-to-day activities of a business, and one's personal perspective about the condition of a project.
