The Gap 2.0

reality3Watching five seasons of Grey’s Anatomy alone will not make you a qualified surgeon. Likewise, the fact that you have information doesn’t mean you’ve changed.

In certain areas, there’s a major gap between who you are and what you know. This is very important in leadership.

To succeed in leadership, you must sharpen your senses to be able to detect where people really are compared to the information that they possess. Sometimes, it’s the difference between success and failure.

In my journey, I’ve met people that have mastered ‘the talk’. They are skilled at sounding right, but further interaction reveals that they have no clue of what they’re talking about. It’s all just – talk.

You are not yet all that you know. Admit it.

I’m now quick to admit what I can and cannot do. It saves you the stress of getting into agreements based on capacities that you do not possess.

What I know and have not attained, I’m growing to become. I work daily to close the gaps, but I only transact based on who I am. That way, I can easily deliver.
