George had me do some exercises, focused on business growth and stimulation. We read through a number of ideas by Bobb Biehl and one of them mentioned Leadership in the workplace and how leaders fail. I've subjected myself to all three of these failings, so I know how devastating the consequences can become when you are running a million miles an hour in a daze.
'Here are 3 concepts to apply to your life today:
1) Fog - Because even a brand new Ferrari can only go about 2 miles an hour safely in a dense fog. With a "foggy" brain, you can't begin to realize your natural 'horsepower." The quicker you clear your head, the quicker you can be at full throttle mentally.
2) Fatigue - According to the late great Green Bay Packers coach, Vince Lombardi, "Fatigue makes cowards of us all." It also turns us introspective and negative. Fatigue warps our objectivity in decision making. Avoid making a critical decision when fatigued. Whenever a person says, "I'm really tired," start listening and encouraging. If you try to sell and convince a fatigued person, you will only overwhelm and alienate.
3) Flirtations - When you are in a "fog" or "become fatigued," you are tempted to flirt with a wide variety of ideas with which you should not be flirting.'
Do any of these 3 concepts apply to you? If so, stop..... slow down, and reassess. You deserve better. I would recommend you continue this conversation with a trusted mentor or advisor in your life. Ask if you are guilty of the same business sins I am. If you are, adjust.
