At one time or another, we all feel a little less than our best. Perhaps we had a poor night’s sleep or we experienced “one of those days.”
During times like these we can become susceptible to a virus, our energy levels are lower, we feel achy, and we may suffer with a fever. Generally speaking, we do not feel well.
This post is not advocating that we show up to work when contagious and risk infecting everyone. However, Jerry West made an interesting statement, “You can’t get much done in life if you only work on the days when you feel good.”
We need to learn how to work through the times when we do not feel as good as other days.
Remember our purpose. Do not lose sight of why we are leading.
Put one foot in front of the other. At times, just getting started helps.
Focus on the goal. The result promises to be worth the effort.
Remain dedicated to finish. It is not how we start, but how we finish that makes a difference.
Leadership motivates us to show up everyday!
