I was recently talking with someone and we got into a discussion about our respective businesses.
As is often the case when I ask someone what they want for their business, they told me all of the things they didn’t want.
The trouble with this is that, if you focus on what you don’t want, you will stay stuck. Think about it; you don’t drive a car looking through the back window. You focus on the road ahead.
So if you want to get better results as a leader, manager or in your career, focus on what you want, not what you don’t want.
