MVP: Manage your priorities. Be fully present. Build supports for remaining strategic.
How do we escape the black hole of urgency?
We stop managing time and start managing our priorities. That is the first step.
How do we move from being strategically reactive to being a strategic leader?
We focus on being fully present with others, and we begin growing our people.
How do we break the cycle of moving from strategic to urgent and back again?
The hard truth is that we don’t.
However, what we can do is build supports for ourselves to help us stay strategic more often and escape the urgent more quickly.
We never arrive. Leadership is always journey.
Isn’t that awesome?
