My Executive Coach recently presented me with a business opportunity:
“You have $2,000.
I have $50.00.
Do you want to trade?”
Of course I don’t, I replied.
“Then stop spending so much time on email, and other $50 tasks. You are a leader, and should be spending your time doing $2,000 tasks.”
To be someone worth following, you must get from behind the computer, or cell-phone, and into the trenches.
One-on-one human relationships are still the currency of leadership.
Spend your time, therefore, wisely.
