There just does not seem to be enough time in the day to get everything done that needs to be done. Or is there? Maybe, you need more time to get more accomplished because of how you spend your time. Think about all the things you do in the day, both at work and at home. Can you eradicate or curtail anything? I suspect so. But more often than not, we convince ourselves that we are already operating at full capacity. Instead of complaining about needing more hours in the day, start believing that you can do more. Capacity is a state of mind. Convince yourself that you can do more, and your mind will find ways to make it happen. More importantly, convince yourself that you should do more, and stick to your conviction. Eliminate your distractions – unmotivated coworkers, checking social media, etc. – and get more done.
One can measure the quality of a leader by their accomplishments. Real leaders produce results. Those who are unable to produce results are not really leading. And yet, sometimes the results of a leader’s actions are not always known. Because sometimes, the best course of action is taken in private, behind the scenes. Not because a great leader must be sneaky or manipulative. On the contrary, the best leaders often act with a disinterest in public credit for their achievements. The primary goal of a great leader is the greater good of the organization. They are more interested in advancing their team than in their personal achievements. So they unselfishly lead their organizations, giving credit to the entire team when an achievement is known. They know that sometimes an achievement is reached that only they can appreciate.
