Success is as much what you don’t do as what you do.
Seven things leaders should not do:
- What everybody else is doing.
- Worry about shortcomings. The difference between successful people and really successful people is that the top people are confident, comfortable with who they are and just keep playing to their strengths.
- Waste time.
- Try to succeed. It’s not that they aren’t trying, but they’re trying to get something done, not necessarily to be a success. They move from one project to the next, setting it up, doing and winning. Success is a by-product.
- Breathe their own fumes. In other words, they never lose their curiosity, never stop growing, and never get stuck in the status quo.
- Fear competitors. They know that competition spurs improvement.
- Fake it. Sure, you can act upbeat when you’re worried, but ultimately, you won’t get away with pretending to be somebody you’re not. Just be who you are.
