“All you can do is learn good to balance the bad. Learn and do all the good within your reach. Then, if you wake in a sweat, you have something to set against the dream.”— Tamora Pierce
- Is the work you are doing building your skills?
- Are you leading your projects in a way that is building the talents of the team’s members?
- Are you and those you are leading doing the work in a way that will exhaust them by the start of 2020 or in a way that will have them leaping into the new year with momentum?
- Are you having fun with your leadership?
It is my observation that those leaders who answer the first three questions with a strong “Yes!” are almost certainly having fun while leading. If they answer no, it is less likely.
I encourage you to work on moving all your answers to a “Yes!”. You will find that the value you provide to those around you, your company, and your customers will grow.
Yours in the calm pursuit of excellence,Alan Willett
