Here are the two most important lists you’ll ever keep:
1. Things That Keep Me Up At Night.
2. Reasons I Get Up In The Morning.
According to Alan M. Webber, blogging on Harvard Business Publishing, the items you put on these lists helps define who you are — the first step toward becoming a better manager. “Managers and leaders have got to know themselves before they know their businesses,” writes Webber. “They’ve got to have passion for their work and concern for their world. Otherwise they’re just punching the time clock and risking everyone’s future.”
“A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much, and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all.”
– Georges Bernanos
