Whoever said you can’t do many things at the same time?
Focus can help you fix everything about something crucial but leverage can help you fix something crucial about everything.
Always focus on the essence. Without influence, you’ll always walk alone.
Empowering others gives you leverage.
When you’ve got more eyes than two, you can watch over more things than few.
If two heads are better than one, then how much better would many heads be?
No wonder someone once said, “be in control, not over-control”.
Let some eyes do the watching, then watch the watching eyes. That way, much more will be seen than only one can see.
That is the power of delegation, but remember, you must ensure that you either gather capable eyes or you train whatever eyes that are available to become reliable.
Don’t delegate in a haste, except you are ready to bear the consequences.
If you alone can see in your neighbourhood, there’ll be darkness whenever you take a break.
But if you can get a few eyeballs to see through your screens, then you can always rest while they do the seeing.
If you take your screens away, they’ll need you again.
Also note that if there are sufficient eyes to see all that you see, then you may not be useful anymore to your neighbourhood. So always ensure that you don’t see alone or you would be stressed out and that other eyes don’t see enough or you’ll be left out.
Ofcourse there are exceptions as well as variations to everything in life.
You can only watch over as far as your eyes can see. Go get more eyes and be sure that they are all yours.
Once you seize to be relevant, you’ll also seize to be prominent.
When you can only see little, you can only influence little.
And when those who see are seeing for you, you can afford the time to think, while they see.
As long as you are ahead, others will follow.
Can you lead from behind?
Whenever you have an edge, there is room for leverage!
