For the past few weeks no one has dominated the ESPN airwaves as much as, Denver Bronco quarterback, Tim Tebow.
Regardless of where you stand on Tebow and his ability to be an NFL QB, you have to give him credit for surviving all the scrutiny and helping the Broncos to make the playoffs.
One of the highlights to Tebow’s season was a six game winning streak, which included several fourth quarter comebacks.
During the streak, NFL analyst, Trent Dilfer made a statement that has stuck with me for several weeks.
Dilfer said of Tebow, “Great athletes, in critical moments, don’t rely on their talent, they rely on their training.”
The same is true for great leaders. Their ability to deliver the goods when the pressure is on is more about habits than it is about skill.
When you look at your productivity, rest assured, it is a reflection of your systems as much as it is your ability.
So what are your “go to” habits? Those few fundamental practices that you practice over and over, day after day, year after year?
As you begin 2012, are there some habits that you need to establish? Some that you need to re-establish?
Habits matter. Don’t go anther day hoping, wishing, and dreaming. Start doing.
Why? Because “Great leaders, in critical moments, don’t rely on their talent, they rely on their training.”
What is your most important leadership habit?
