Leadership Nudge™ 187 – Think Long-Term

This is the Mayan temple of Chichen Itza and this took 300 years to build. Now, imagine starting a project and keeping the same plans, the same design and the same values for 300 years. The Mayans were great with calendars. They had a 5000 year calendar.

So, here’s what we do as leaders: We want to have a long-term perspective. Here’s a trick for that.

Take your calendar, go six months into the future and then imagine it’s that day. Then, think back to today and say, “What do I wish I’d done?”

Leaders have a long-term perspective.
