complaining-reflects-leadership-skills

Instead of complaining about things that are not going fine, leaders take a break. You must be confident enough to know when to stop pushing, especially now. That moment when you see that all you do as a leader si complain, that’s when you need to stop.

Procrastination is one major manifestation of timidity.Trying to realize our ambitions, even if we don’t always meet them, is preferable to not having the courage or motivation to take the risk. So not making any resolutions because we fear that we will break them is having a defeatist attitude, as we allow procrastination to become an insidious habit which stops us from leading more fulfilling lives…
