FOCUS ON YOUR STRENGTH:
The keys to success are priorities and concentration. A well-known pastor and business leader offers the following guidelines:
Focus 70 per cent of your energy on developing your strengths. Effective leaders who reach their potential spend more time on what they do well than on what they do badly.
Focus 25 per cent on new things. If you want to get better you have to keep changing and improving. That means stepping out into new areas. If you dedicate time to new things related to your strong areas, you’ll grow as a leader.
Focus 5 per cent on areas of weakness. Nobody can entirely avoid working in their areas of weakness.
(Note: we’re not talking here about character weaknesses that must be dealt with.)
The key is to delegate to gifted people the things that you’re not particularly good at. That way you’re free to concentrate in the areas of your strengths.
