Nobody wakes up one day with the exceptional ability and knack to for self-leadership. Just like everything else, it takes practice…and effort…and determination. You will grow and develop your self-leadership skills if you invest your energy on a daily basis into the following two actions:
1. Preparation for the things that help you to be successful.
2. Separation from the things that hurt your chances to be successful.
I’ve probably oversimplified it. But you are all smart people. You know what you should be doing and what you shouldn’t be doing. The trick isn’t in the knowing…it’s in the doing. These actions are only effective if actually do what will help you and don’t do what will hurt you. When that happens, you are on the path to leading yourself well.
