Tim’s Quought for the Day:

What am I accountable for accomplishing in 2007?

Tim’s note accompanying the Quought: 
This is not the same as “what do I need to do?”  I’m asking two
things with this question:

1.  What do I need to get DONE (i.e., finished)?  A lot of us start things – how many of us finish them?  And, are the things I need to get done the right things for me?

2.  How do I effectively own the accomplishment (i.e., possibly working through others to lead them in making the accomplishment happen)?  We’re all busy people.  How can we leverage those around us to create something
greater than we could do on our own?  How do we tap into the servant-leader within to envelop those more talented and bring them along on our journey?
