I frequently hear stories of people who say they’re too busy and don’t have time. It’s as if there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. Not having enough time is a problem that seems to be at epidemic proportions. We even wear our busyness as a badge of honour when responding to questions like, “how are you?”

As a leader, your job is to create an environment for people to do their best work. This includes you.

Be clear on your priorities. Do not hide the problem of too many competing priorities, as it will become your problem alone. And, do not let other people convince you there’s no choice but to do it all.

There’s always a choice.

You’ve got this.
