The Elusive Sweet Spot!


“We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

            ~ Will Durant


“Life is too short to do the things we don’t love doing.”

            ~ Bruce Dickinson


“Too much hurry will bury your goals. Too much haste will make you waste. Too quick race will cripple your pace. Be patient.” 

            ~ Israelmore Aylvor


“If you make the mistake of looking back too much, you aren’t focused enough on the road in front of you.”

            ~ Brad Paisley


I’m alluding to the sweet spot between too much and too little.  Doing too much, doing too little, caring too much, caring too little … you get my drift.

Where does the sweet spot exist in leadership?  I suggest, to find the sweet spot, a leader must ask questions of themselves, first and foremost.  Am I effective or efficient, am I unorganized or confused, is my input high and my output low, am I working smart, do I balance my work life?   To mention a few.

Leadership has an obligation to question their own intention, action and, practice before questioning anyone else.   The ‘sweet spot’ comes with personal awareness of thoughtful words and actions.   I would suggest that when balance is difficult to find it then becomes difficult to lead.
