We all get sucked into busyness. Having a clear plate of work alleviates the stress and fear of having nothing to do.
But if we just do the work in front of us and execute based on the facts, we avoid risk. At some point we’re going to have to try something new if we really want to get anywhere. Do we want to be followers or industry leaders?
Doing the right thing is a sum of our actions. If we don’t take a few chances now and again we risk conforming to mediocrity. Yield to industriousness but don’t forget to lead the way.
