Fast-moving high-performers fall into this trap all the time.
When you’re young and building your career, it is all about how much you can do.
How much can you learn?
How much can you get done in a day?
And most challenges sent your way are scoped to the level that you can execute.
A few more hours to complete, skills sharpened just a bit, deadlines met with that little extra push.
If you choose leadership, you will run up against the edge of what you can personally do.
Success is about how much can you enable?
Alignment on direction.
Clarity on success.
Time on improving the systems and coaching the people.
Take a look at your calendar. Where is your time going?
You can’t outwork it.
