Have you ever seen someone who is so flexible that it's hard to know where they stand?
There have been times when I felt that way myself. It feels free, but then limits because it's so hard to make a decision. How do you choose? What's best?
I've since learned that it helps in making decisions to rely on a solid set of values, a strong sense of purpose, and a committed set of goals. Everything else, from projects to past times, falls in line with those three things. When you add your sense of faith to your values (or as one of your values) it becomes much easier to see when it's necessary to be flexible and when it's necessary to remain firm.
High performance leaders maintain flexibility without losing focus. They know when to be flexible and when to be firm.
How about you?
