I like shortcuts. I’m always looking for the quickest way to get somewhere. “If it’s worth getting there it’s worth getting there fast” is my mantra for driving my car.
But all shortcuts aren’t created equal. There are wise shortcuts and lazy shortcuts.
The wise shortcut gets you there with the minimal time and effort, with no compromise in quality. It’s the standing up from your desk 35 times in a day that is better for you than 15 minutes of cardio workout approach to life.
The lazy shortcut gets your there with minimal time and effort, but the quality is compromised. It’s the missing the last set approach to working out.
One approach is smart, one is lazy; don’t mix the two up.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
To love and be loved. Isn’t that all there really is?
Almost everyone I know who has achieved greatness in something, be that business, sports, the arts, they all began their journey to escape something.
There’s a lot of talk now about hiring people for attitude rather than skills.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
Sometimes wonderful things take you by surprise, they open a new door.
Have you ever moved into a new house and seen something that needed fixing and thought “I’ll get on to that soon”?
Humans are tribal.
As humans we have an insatiable desire to explain untoward events so we can get on with solutions.
