"How You Do One Thing Is How You Do Everything" - Quote
Every quarter I do a gut check on my "WHY". I like to check-in on my mission and vision. It's important to me to make sure that I am operating out of a place of self-worth and value. Quiet frankly, there is no other way to operate, so the quarterly gut check has worked quite well for me. I am fortunate to have realized early on that a purposeful business and life validates itself. And it does it in many ways, whether it is an award or a conversation with the five people that showed up to your meeting. It's all about perspective. YOURS. So, the important thing here is to know your worth, check in often and stay focused.
Becoming a high-potential leader requires a resume of consistency and excellence. You must deliver day-in and day-out in the smallest of things. One of my favorite quotes involving life is, "How you do one thing, is how you do everything." It never gets old and never fails to ring true. Your potential as a leader is dependent on your doing. So, be excellent in the small things, and the big things are destined for you.
The high-potential leader has clarity. They are always looking beyond the veil of their chosen industry. They understand that responsibility is further than the eye can see, and every process, project, partnership or dollar, must have this in mind. So, invest in learning across the table, buy often into saying "no" and stay out of muddy waters. Stay clear.
