Following this principle in our professional/leadership lives is a must. Distractions are plan and execution killers. We know our strengths, yet we sometimes let distractions consume our time. Distractions are anything that takes us away from our customers or from our qualified growth initiatives. We must continue to innovate and move into new areas, however we should only continue doing so for as long as new initiatives remain valid growth opportunities. If they start to become a distraction, it is critical to re-focus on our core success areas and continue looking for the other qualified growth opportunities.
