- Things That Keep Me Up At Night.
- Reasons I Get Up In The Morning.
"Managers and leaders have got to know themselves before they know their businesses," writes Webber. "They've got to have passion for their work and concern for their world. Otherwise they're just punching the time clock and risking everyone's future."Webber includes this advice in a larger post on the topic of what business schools should be teaching their students. It jumped out at me as a worthy exercise to help many of us gain perspective as well as keep our priorities straight.
Writing my own lists, I was struck at how much the recession is both keeping me up at night (for example, worry over what the economy is doing to people I know both financially and psychologically) as well as fueling my creative energy (using simplicity and focus to leverage fewer resources into more productivity). I wonder, is there something I can do to move more 'keep me up' items to the 'reasons to go to work' side of the ledger?
How would you fill out your lists?
