Leadership Thought Of The Day…

“I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t do everything… at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.” Dan Millman

The reality of the first line can be tough. How many times do leaders find themselves in a position where they are trying to do everything and become so overloaded or overcommitted, the stress levels are through the roof.

At least one key thought is expressed in the idea of priorities: when to do what needs to be done. The idea involves evaluating what must be done today.

Too often it is easy to be consumed with thinking about what should be done tomorrow, next week, next month, or even next year. We feel overwhelmed and accomplish nothing, as if we do not know where to start. The key is examining what “has” to be done today and prioritizing those matters, then getting to work.

Within no time, we will find that the timing falls into place perfectly and everything works out.
