“Every decision is a trade-off. Doing one thing means you can’t do another. Leaders can do anything but they can’t do everything. In deciding what you’ll do, you choose what not to do.”
~ Dr. Tim Elmore
This is something I’ve been re-learning recently. Sometimes you have to say “no”. You might really want to do something, but if you decide to do it, you have to be willing to say no to something else.
A good leader knows their limits.
I have been times where I’ve pushed my limits, thought that I could do more than I could.
I thought I learned this lesson before.
This is something I am learning again.
If you try to do too much, you burn out very quickly. If you feel the burnout start, take a look at what you are doing and decide what you are going to give up.
