But,  we rarely experience people helping us put those 2 things to best use.

Be the exception...help people disentangle the energy wrapped around their Talents.

 

Here's a good habit: test your Decisions against the Values you hold dearest.

You will find decision-making becomes easier and 'less conflicted' when you develop the habit of testing your decisions against your personal values.

"Men trust their ears less than their eyes."

Herodotus

Greek Historian, 484BCE-425BCE

Now, 2400 years after Herodotus, psychologists are completing experiments that confirm Herodotus' ancient wisdom...our eyes overrule our ears...truly, we do believe what our eyes see them do more than what our ears hear them say. This applies to their major actions and to their minor body-language signals.

As the pace of change increases, so does the power of leaders' courage & confidence.

And courage & confidence require lots of energy...because energy is needed to fuel clear thought and action.

So - use your energy as best you can, ensuring some of it goes to developing your self-confidence [which fuels the development of courage].
