Are the fire’s necessary?

I continue to discover a common perception of productive leadership, by those who see themselves as leaders, is to posses the skills to distinguish the fires.

I’ll admit, I’ve done this.  In fact, I am quite talented at strategically distinguishing the obstacles that continued to get in the way. Moreover, I reached a point a few years ago, to completely stop. Why?

Once it is known you can do this, guess what you will always be doing?

Second, as a leader and over time, you will be the example that fuels the insane behavior of ongoing, non productive repetition.

Now, I don’t involve myself in situations that don’t have purpose, or meaningful to the individuals involved.

The challenge: there are no guidelines to follow. Only starting points and possible attempts. On the flip side, no time is wasted, as every day feels new.
