In seasons of progress, when I find myself moving with a lot of momentum; I have to be careful not to bite off more than I can chew.
I remember when I learned that what a great employee I was able to be. My response was to work all of the time and do my very best at all times. From early on, to even today in my career; I tend to take on more work than I should when things are going well. The problem is that things continue to go well, because I love to work and I love the work that I do!
More work doesn’t always mean more progress. If I don’t rest and recover, my work will suffer. Trying to do everything on my own is egotistical and poor leadership. More isn’t always better. More of me is often NOT better, but worse. Taking on more than I am capable of doing is neglectful when I cannot provide the support I committed to provide.
I don’t want to be the guy with a busy schedule. I want to be the guy who makes a positive, significant impact. That doesn’t mean as much work as possible. It means: I want to accomplish much GREAT work as we are able to accomplish as our best selves.
Do well, not just more.
Have a great week!
