Winning The Right Race--Part 1

The Coates Perspective for March 19, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
Making Time for You (Part 1)

As I work with corporate leaders I have discovered that many leaders are consumed with an intense amount of work-related pressure. Some have labeled this pressure as “the rat race.” There is only one winner in the rat race. The rat. It was comedian Lily Tomlin who remarked, The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.” Who wants to be the rat?

Apparently, there are lots of leaders who are willing to experience burnout in order to gain the prize. Yes, every leader desires to be successful in what they do, but at what cost to one’s health, one’s relationships at work and at home, or one’s own sense of worth?

Throughout the next few blog posts I will share with you some strategic ways in which you can be an effective leader and still keep your life. Here is my first tip for those who wish to not become consumed by professional and personal burnout:

1.     Make quality time for yourself. Schedule frequent activities that will renew you. There is nothing wrong with being busy, but there are many things that are wrong with a busyness that consumes you.
 
You’ve read my perspective.
