How does your day end, or begin?
The first principle of strategic leadership is to be purposeful by prioritizing the important over the urgent. Thinker and innovator Seth Godin suggested in a recent 115-word blog post:
What if… the last thing we did [in a day] was make a list of exciting opportunities for the future? And if the first thing after waking up was doing some morning pages and jotting down what we’re looking forward to?
It is a busy world, so you may not have time to devote an hour to quadrant 2 each morning, but could you replace the 15-20 minutes spent on your phone with 15-20 minutes of identifying opportunities and investing in organizational improvement?
Do good and be well,
