Simple is a Strategy

I recently heard a story firsthand where a couple had gone to a marriage counselor. Both the teller and her husband come with extremely impressive credentials in fields that could easily intimidate a counselor.

When they were done with their sessions with their particular counselor, he said to them, “Knowing your backgrounds and who you two are, I had to keep things very simple.”

My first thoughts upon hearing this story were how wise this counselor is and how impressed I was with the confidence he exhibited in his strategy.

Simplicity is a powerful tool for you the Leader. When you set general goals, my guess is you are not much different than me – we don’t accomplish them – not without confusion and struggle. However, when we set specific goals, with specific strategies of what we will do, we accomplish them. Specificity is how you create mindfulness – a constant presence about what you really desire to make happen for yourself and others. Some may also call this intention.
