It’s easy to get frustrated when you’re asked to repeat yourself. We’ve been through this before. Why are we having this same conversation? But if someone else doesn’t get what you’re trying to say, it’s really not their fault.
It’s easy to see the options in front of us. Valuable leaders can see beyond what’s available into yet-unseen possibilities.
Do you ever get home and not remember what you did for the whole day at work? You were always on the move. You were always doing something for someone. Obviously you were a much-valued member of the team to have so much required of you. So then why can’t you remember what you actually did? And if you can’t remember that, surely you can’t remember why you were doing it!
