The 80/20 Rule

Leaders identify the need to spend 80% of time on strengths and 20% on weaknesses.

Should this not be the opposite? We need to understand that when we spend the majority of our time on weaknesses, they may get stronger, but strengths get weaker because we have not kept them sharp.

Great leaders spend the majority of their time continually working on strengths, keeping them strong and growing. Then, they find others who are strong in the areas they are weak and use them to fill the gaps.

Know your strengths and weaknesses. Know yourself. Work on the appropriate areas and build a team to help the rest.
