Whether in a sport, at a job, or in a family, everyone everywhere is part of a team. The Everyday Drills blog is designed to create a moment each morning where we are intentional about becoming better teammates and team leaders. Subscribe for thoughtful ways for you and your team to be challenged each and every day.
Time, money, attention, mind space, proximity, and number of available lunch appointments have their limits. Everyone has a limit so limits are not what separates the great team from the ordinary team. The management of limits are what make that distinction. Understanding that limited resources can be wasted on unimportant things is at the heart of the attitude of responsible stewardship. Money is the famous limitation but there are people who have so much money that it seems limitless. Those people still only have seven possible lunch appointments in a week. Those people only have 720 minutes per day and a third of those minutes are spent sleeping. The point is that management begins with more intention than most people are willing to consider.
