A couple of nights ago I caught a few minutes of The Biggest Loser. One of the trainers spoke a powerful reminder to a contestant who was disappointed with his results.
“Fall in love with the work. Don’t fall in love with the results.”
How many times do I get sucked in to the “results trap?” Let’s just say, “Too often.”
The crazy thing is, when I approach my work with zeal and zest, my results are usually favorable.
If you want to be a more productive leader, I suggest you fall in love with your work, not your results.
Do you think most leaders are too focused on results? If so, what is the consequence?
