Lesson #3: Stay Present

It’s no wonder the biggest driver of workplace stress is workload. Leaders and employees alike cannot seem to change their behavior when it comes to the concept of time. A nerve-wracking workload is the result. In sum, most of us don’t use our time very well. The systems we adopt to convince ourselves we are winning the time battle are mere illusion. To improve your ability to lead, you must come clean. Time is the enemy. Ultimately our mismanagement of time has reached epic heights, the point at which it’s detrimentally affecting our ability to lead self and others. Time management isn’t the answer, however. Behavior change to use your time more effectively is the key.
