““To be effective as a leader, you’ve got to narrow your life. You’ve got to be really clear on the things that are most important, most critical, most strategically important. You just anchor there. Be aware of distractions. You’ll get distracted on an email, a conversation that will spin you around and not move you forward. It’s not important.””
“If you do anything in life, you’re going to have critics. You need to learn early and fast that that’s a reality. You’re never going to make everyone happy. There’s going to be people that are not going to like your leadership for a million different reasons. But, there’s always a nugget of wisdom that you can get from critics.”
