This week we are starting Part 3 of “Making Ideas Happen” with a section on Leadership Capability. When we start taking our idea out into the world we can no longer go solo, we need to build a team. With that comes the challenge to grow our leadership skills. In this section we are shown how ‘short-circuiting the rewards system’ we’ve been conditioned to rely is necessary to make our ideas happen: we need to replace short-term rewards with an ability to both go without ‘success’ and ‘trick’ ourselves into staying engaged. Let’s make it happen!
How do you ‘reward’ yourself when you’ve met your goals? Also, if you have long-term goals how do you trick yourself into staying committed when it doesn’t seem like you are a success yet?
