Do you “protect your time”?
I hear this term used often. It’s wrong:
- Too-good-er: The mindset of thinking certain things are beneath you.
- Not my responsibility: The rigid, inflexible lack of team-player DNA.
Time doesn’t need you to protect it. It needs you to leverage it:
- Saying no to say yes: The mindset of choosing not to do the wrong things so that you can choose the right things. And do them well.
- Bring your genius: Leveraging your team-player DNA to bring more value in ways you’re uniquely equipped to do so.
Don’t be a too-good, rigid “protector of time”. Be an intentional genius who leverages time for the good of your team.
