Always bring as much energy to the new team as you did to all the ones before. That’s why you’re leading them, because of what you brought before them. There are no laurels to rest on, now it’s time for new achievements, new opportunities and unrealized growth.
There is an inherent fear that if we are not there to do our job, how will people do it without us. What will happen when we go on vacation? What will happen when we leave for another opportunity? I’ll keep this simple, life will go on, you hired the people, they will be fine, if you taught them what they need to know they should do things better than you ever could. Everything will…
Anywhere. But Start. The more you think about starting, the less you are going to do it. It’s as simple as that.
That’s our goal. That’s what I heard our goal was – “Just Above the Bare Minimum.” If there was a place not to set the bar, that was it, because it’s so low, you can step right over it. Be better than the Bare Minimum… or just above it.
We never have time to do anything that we will know will one day break until that one fateful day when it breaks, in the worst possible way. Then we have all the time in the world.
