What is it about how we see the world? Some see the negatives, live in fear, and move so cautiously they miss any realistic chance of making a difference.
Others move so rapidly that they don't pause for even a moment to consider the impact of their reckless decision-making style.
Still others are so full of confidence that they are sure their approach is the right one. Until it's not.
As someone who has a...shall we say, healthy ego...finding the sweet spot between confidence and arrogance can be challenging at times.
Maybe you struggle with that too. Since I've been around the block more times than I care to count, that elusive thing known as experience has suddenly become an ally.
It guides me...protects me...and spurs me on when I see opportunities that others don't see.
But where is that balance? How do we find it when we know, whether we would like to admit it or not, that we have blind spots...even with all of our 'experience?'
Having a team that you trust around you makes a big difference. When you trust your team, ideas can be shared, different perspectives can be examined, and the best plan can be executed.
In the absence of that culture, you are destined to fall prey to those blind spots. Right?
