I can’t do a lot.
My personal growth goals for 2016 take up space. This leaves me with time to impact effectively 1 job and 1 community. In order to find success in the goals I set forth for myself tenacious focus and discipline on this is a must.
I’ve said no a lot this year, but reading The Disciplined Pursuit of Less reminds me that I haven’t said no, enough. Success brings opportunity. The pursuit of more can take the eye off the ball.
“Few appear to have the courage to live this principle, which may be why it differentiates successful people and organizations from the very successful ones.” HBR
In his own words, my friend Sukhi reminded me this weekend that we’re not just here to succeed, we’re meant to raise the bar another level.
Doing so means focus, patience and discipline.
I’ve written about in the past. Thanks to failure, the message is setting in.
