3 Questions to Keep your Leadership Focus

3 Questions to Keep your Leadership Focus

It’s easy to get bogged down in daily activities that take us away from the important things in work and life. When that happens it’s also easy to lose our focus and then the important things don’t seem so important anymore. They merely get lost in all the activities and chaos that surround our lives.

Here are 3 questions I ask myself regularly that help keep me on track as a leader:

1. What’s the one thing I know I need to do?

2. What is the one area where I can make a difference?

3. What is the one thing I can’t ignore?

Sometimes, I don’t have time to address all three answers so I pick one to start with. It’s usually the first one; the one thing I know I need to do. What about you, which one would you pick?
