🔆 When do you know when you're doing too much?

When do you know when you’re doing too much?

One CEO raised this question yesterday during our weekly Mastermind, which got me thinking.

Personally, I’ve experienced this:

  • Making +90 hours a week – but not delivering enough of what my boss expected
  • Creating 100+ slide decks – but not meeting expectations enough from my audience
  • Offering a service with all bells and whistles – but not enough to make customers fans

Key takeaway: Doing too much often results in delivering too little

  • Too little impact
  • Too little attention to what matters
  • Too little empathy for what others care about and need

What I realize always gets me grounded:

  • Taking much more time to care for myself (sleep, exercise..)
  • Taking much more time to reflect
  • Taking much more time to listen and learn (not assume)

With that said – this is exactly what I am going to do.

I am off for some holiday. I’ll see you back around August 8th for the next Daily Reflection.

Be remarkable!
