"Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted." - Sun Tzu
We are exhausted. It is probably the most common complaint from executives -- I'm tired, I'm busy, I'm exhausted, I'm late to yet another call, meeting, family engagement, whatever. How do we get in front of our work? The answer: be early. In fact, if you're not 10 minutes early, then you're late. It's your world, set your standards, don't choose to race between emails, meetings, calls, and texts. Make it your ritual to be early, and set that standard with your team. I worked with this guy who was always late, and he wondered why his team had no discipline and would always come late to meetings. Don't give your competitor the edge, be early, and win. © GB
