This quote reminds us that cause and effect are not always as simple as we assume.
Does getting great results make a happy team… or do happy team members create great results?
Do powerful leaders have the luxury of cutting extraneous tasks out of their day… or do those who create space for more focus rise to become leaders?
Take a moment to consider what you are intending to become when you reach a certain milestone. Where are you waiting to feel happy, before you smile?
Now, consider how you could begin to introduce that into your life and work now. Could that, paradoxically, be the tipping point that accelerates you toward your goal?
