Do You Know the Difference Between Precision and Speed?

When it comes to performance, which is more important, precision or speed?

That depends.

If you are driving an Indy car, you probably need a good measure of both. But if your goal is to lead people, you only need to be able to recognize both.

Let me explain.

On my team, there are some people who are fast. You give them an assignment and within hours it is done. Not always perfect, but always on time. I know others who are rarely early, but can be counted on to be exact. Two different personality types and two different sets of results. Neither better than the other. Just different.

This is where leadership comes in. If I assign something with a lot of detail to someone who is a conqueror, I should not be surprised if they struggle delivering it exactly like I want it. Likewise, if I expect a deadline to be beaten by a detail hound, I will only frustrate us both.

Great leaders know how to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of their team members and align them accordingly.

If you have someone who is struggling to meet your expectations or deadlines, it might be as much your fault as it is theirs. Before you give up on them, you should make sure you have them working in their area of strength.

Precision or speed? People rarely have both. It is your job to know the difference.

YOLO

YOLO. Short for You Only Live Once.

It has become a buzzword. My kids filled me in on the lingo a couple of years ago on one of our beach trips. Cool Dad alert!

YOLO is a great reminder for those who find themselves in the wrong groove, aka … a rut.

The tendency for those who are experiencing success is to become complacent. Complacency leads to playing it safe. Playing it safe is anti – YOLO.

YOLO understands that you are the only one who can show up and be you. One shot – regrets or fulfillment hanging in the balance.

Where do you need to go “YOLO” in the coming week? Is there a place where you are holding back? An area where you have lost your passion? A project you have been putting off?

If so, go find a mirror, look at the guy staring back at you, and scream out loud to him (or her), “You only live once. Stop holding back!”

YOLO is not as hard as we make it out to be. It just requires initiative and courage.

Want to spice up your life?

Remember – YOLO!

The Key to Happiness

One of the things I am most passionate about is trying to help leaders discover what they are born to do.

I see so many people who are trapped under the burden of expectations, not living in their sweet spot.

I admit, many times I find myself starting from the place of what others need from me rather than beginning with how I can best add value. I find it difficult to do my best when I am not aligned with what I do best.

Educator, John Dewey once wrote, “To find out what one is fitted to do, and to secure an opportunity to do it, is the key to happiness.”

I would add that it is not just your happiness that is on the line. It is better for everyone when you show up true to who you really

Finding Your Way

If you have never taken the time to work through the process of discovery, I encourage you to start by reading our book, FINDING YOUR WAY: Discovering the Truth about You. The simple story will hopefully become your compass to discover the truth about yourself – that you were created for greatness with incredible gifts, talents, and passions.

If you want to find fulfillment perhaps it is time to make some changes. Remember, “To find out what one is fitted to do, and to secure an opportunity to do it, is the key to happiness.”

How much do you think the effectiveness of a leader increases when they spend the bulk of their time “doing what they do best?”

Do You Need a Breakthrough?

Sometimes it is hard to see the sunrise, especially when your view is blocked by the trees.

that was my experience.

The fact is, the sunrise was fully there, I just couldn’t see it … fifty feet of trees between me and a breathtaking start to the day.

Everyday leaders quit on their dreams.

Why? Because the resistance is too great. Momentum has been lost. The challenge to be disciplined feels too hard.

So they give up. Many times when breakthrough is only a final step away.

If you are in a situation where you are ready to throw in the towel, I want to encourage you to hang in there.

Your sunrise might be closer than you think.

Frozen

Are you holding back?

The past couple of weeks the weather in Atlanta has been unseasonably cold. Several of my friends have lived through the horror of frozen pipes and flooded basements.

Frozen

Hindsight is 20-20, but I couldn’t help but think about the advice my dad gave me when I was a kid. He said the best way to keep pipes from freezing is to leave a little water running on a cold night; flowing water rarely freezes. I must admit, I did not heed his advice the last couple of weeks but somehow still managed to escape calamity.

My dad’s theory is embedded with a life and leadership principle. That is, if you want to keep from being frozen, you better keep your talent flowing.  “Use it or lose it,” as they say, is a popular adage for a reason.

Too many people I know hold back on their dreams and subsequently become paralyzed because of fear – frozen, if you will. Others hold back team members, failing to encourage or believe in them. The team becomes frozen because of the leader’s insecurity.

The amazing thing about a faucet is that there is no end to the water supply available to it. Yet, unless the valve is opened up, things remain dry.

Stop holding back, open your leadership faucet, and watch what happens. Ideas will flow, projects will be accomplished, people will flourish, and dreams will be realized.

Perhaps the only thing holding you back and causing you to be frozen … is You.
