Deal or No Deal?

nine one hundred dollar bills fanned out

My Executive Coach recently presented me with a business opportunity:

He said:

“You have $2,000.

I have $50.00.

Do you want to trade?”

Of course I don’t, I replied.

“Then stop spending so much time on email, and other $50 tasks. You are a leader, and should be spending your time doing $2,000 tasks.”

Message received.

To be someone worth following, you must get from behind the computer, or cell-phone, and into the trenches.

One-on-one human relationships are still the currency of leadership.

Spend your time, therefore, wisely.
