A quickie this morning.
This is the first week of the fourth quarter. Think: Football 4th quarter. We’re behind. It’s been a lousy first three quarters for businesses, non-profits, and governments. The crowds are fidgeting, angry, some are filing out of the stadium. So . . .
Think: Football 4th quarter: This is an opportunity for intense focus. A chance for some new momentum. A chance to put aside internal rivalries and fight the real opponent. And a chance to take some chances.
I say: We can do this. Pick some clear targets and take some decisive moves forward. Bury some hatchets and encourage your teammates. Go into the 2-minute offense – a few less huddles and more focus on execution and pace.
Lead with your best self!
