MVP: Urgent leaders put tasks before people.
I shared last week that I signed a deal to have my book published. This week I’m editing the manuscript and was reminded of three critical lessons which have helped me to have a bigger impact on others. This week I’ll share those lessons (my three epiphanies), but today let’s set the stage.
My book is a guide on how to escape the black hole of urgency.
Being an urgent leader isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition. Most of us have some but maybe not all of the urgent leader elements. It’s also likely that we move in and out of urgency, feeling more or less caught in the black hole depending on the day.
Yesterday I was deep in the darkness, spending my time fighting my computer and bouncing from one thing to the next based on emotion and reaction.
Today, I’m being much more strategic in prioritizing my work.
What about you?
Today’s intention: Think about the degree to which you get caught by urgency. Did it happen last week? How will you avoid it today?
