Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #072 — Nothing to prove!

Having been a cyclist since 2005, something shifted after I turned 50. And, NO, I don’t mean physically (though that may be true, too). I mean emotionally and energetically. Before 50, being one of the first ones up the hill was important. Once I crossed into my “Back 50,” I began to heed the wisdom of Confucius:

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.”

My priorities and focus shifted inward. I realized that I had nothing to prove and no one to prove it to … except for myself. It became about consistency, incremental improvement, personal bests, and enjoyment. THAT was the win!

How often in our businesses are we measuring against external markers … even when they don’t match our internal markers? This week’s conversation will give us a chance to refocus attention, intention, and priorities on our internal drivers.

Whose yardstick are you using?
