05/58: Do the One Thing
Part 05 of the excerpts from 100 Ways To Motivate Others
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
I can’t motivate others if am not doing the right thing and to keep myself in a relaxed & centred state, its important for me not to be scattered, distracted, or spread thin.
Its important that I don’t race around thinking that I’ve got too much to do. The truth is there is only one thing to do. That is the one thing I have chosen to do right now.
A person who thinks that he or she should try to do more than one thing at a time produces fear, adrenaline and anxiety in the human system and others pick up on that.
The greatest source of stress in the workplace is the mind’s attempt to carry many thoughts, many tasks, many future scenarios, many cares, many worries, and many concerns at once.
Motivation requires a calm, centred leader, focused on one thing, and only one thing.
