I have no clue what I'm doing
There’s a sweet spot between “I’ve got this” and “I have absolutely no clue.” If you’ve located the exact whereabouts of this place, please let the rest of us know.
As a leader there are days that you are working in your zone. You’ve been here before and you know the path.
And then there are days that you are fumbling around in a circus fun house with a crazed look in your eyes.
So what do you do on those days???
I’ll tell you. But you have to promise to do it.
You are a leader. Which implies that you have a team of people. If you tap into the intelligence of your team…you will find all the answers.
It’s your job to bring the team together. It’s not your job to solve the problems alone.
Once more for the people in the back: It’s absolutely fine that you don’t have the answers.
So what is the “sweet spot?” Where is this promised land of cool confidence?
The sweet spot is wherever you are with your best people. Go there. And go there often.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
