Are you an octupus on skates?



















Last night I was reading John C. Maxwell's book, “Talent is not Enough” on adaptive leadership.

I found something worth sharing about how "focus" and how it should always be our friend.

TALENT without FOCUS if you can imagine it ... is like an "octopus on roller skates".

Pretty ridiculous visual?

A bunch of arms flailing everywhere!

A whole lot of loud grunting and perspiration flying all around.

Yes, there may be a lot of movement, but the octupus isn't going anywhere.

Bottom line - your TALENT must have the proper FOCUS - in order to take you move you forward, and as fast as you decide.

Make it a great dia and a great week!
