Yesterday I asked Pam (the other Dr. Buskey) if she had read that morning’s leadership email. “No! It was too crazy a day.”
This morning, I went into my email’s Afternoon Read folder, where all of my informational/instructional email automatically get funneled to and I deleted the past 35 days of unread daily messages from the two people I follow. I haven’t read them and won’t catch up. It’s been too crazy.
And that’s okay.
The purpose of a daily leadership is not to read every day. The purpose is to have something available for you on any given day that you:
All three of those conditions need to be present and if they aren’t, you won’t read the daily email. That’s okay!
I hope you read this email out of a sense of desire, not obligation. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t read it yesterday or if you missed the entire month of November. It’s fine. Just read when you have the time, the capacity, and the desire.
Here’s the aha: what else can you apply the same criteria to?
Time, capacity, and desire. Whether it is an email or a project, without all three, it won’t be successful.
