1. Lead Yourself First

The hardest person to lead is the leader in the mirror. And, nobody else is going to lead them for you. 

The best preparation for 2020 is to lead the leader in the mirror with what’s left in 2019. Decide today to prioritize leveraging your strengths and maximizing the impact of your leadership.

2. Schedule What Matters Most

Left unchecked, our calendar becomes full of what other people need us to do. This week, decide to take back your calendar. Schedule what matters most first.

Find two hours of think time, go for a walk, engage your family. Want help scheduling? We recommend Tennessee author Michael Hyatt’s Full Focus Planner.

3. Take responsibility for clarity

What your team needs more than an end of year Christmas Party is clarity about what matters most. What they crave more than a bonus is knowing they are making a difference.

The easiest way to increase your profit and maximize your team is to give them clarity about how to win.

Most leaders are well intentioned at providing clarity. Mission statements get lost or become mediocre wall art, consultants are overpriced, and words lose their energy after 30 days.
