Welcome to a new week. I hope you are ready to make a difference in the lives of those you lead.
Each time Monday rolls around it brings with it a built in do-over for each of us. The question is, How can this week be more impactful than last?
On Thursday and Friday I had the opportunity to attend the Global Leadership Summit in Chicago with 5,000 other leaders. The event was live-streamed to 125,000 others at satellites all over the US, and eventually will be shown to over 300,000 worldwide. I attend the Summit every year to work on my leadership.
One of this year’s speakers was, #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Chris McChesney. In his book, The 4 Disciples of Execution, he says discipline #1 is to Focus on the Wildly Important. At the Summit, McChesney reminded us that the wildly important, “lives at the intersection of what really matters and what’s not going to happen on its own.”
As you think about adding value and creating impact this week, What really matters? What is THE thing that is wildly important for your success? What is that ONE THING that will not happen on its own?
Too often we spend our energy hoping things will get better — wishing we could make progress — dreaming of more capacity.
[Tweet “Hoping, wishing, and dreaming are not a strategy. Focusing is.”]
If you really want to have a great week, zero in on that which is wildly important and make it happen.
What is your top priority for the week?
