Working for the Best!
When you do some work, you do not have to be a perfectionist. You only need to be at par with what can be called an excellent job. Some situations require a rocket science type of quality job. Others, a lot less. So, there is no need to use a large hammer for a small application, nor a big stick, when all you need is a toothpick. When reading a pocket book for enjoyment, you can read faster than usual. When you need to study for mastery of certain scientific principles in physics, you need to read slower perhaps, and spend more time. You may even read the same book chapter several times. Learn therefore to save your time and energy by adjusting your efforts according to what is necessary, and relevant. Don’t overdo something that doesn’t have to be. Be a good judge therefore of what kind of effort is needed for each activity you encounter. Remember, you got plenty of things to cover as a Leader, and your best may not be the solution to a problem. But, you have to do what is best for each situation.
