Daily Quote and Reflection: Be Quick, but Don’t Hurry

Daily Quote: “Be quick, but don’t hurry” by famed UCLA Coach John Wooden

Reflection: By that, he meant learn to do the right things, (not just doing things because that’s what we have always done. ) and then do them quickly. This really is the core of leadership the difference between efficiency–doing things right vs effectiveness doing the right things.

Action Challenge: Review the things you do next week and then categorize them into two columns Efficient Things and Effective things. Stop and reflect on what insight you have gathered and make a commitment to add one new thing to the effectiveness column and subtract one efficient thing in the next week of your self-coaching project. After that week assess how that makes you feel?
