Shot 14: SIGHTING IN VS. INSIGHT

By: Tom Newhouse in Leadership, 4 months ago

A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.”  Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —­­

WHEN ONE’S SIGHTS ARE ALIGNED, hitting the target isn’t too difficult.  That’ sighting in.  But now, having insight is pretty special too. 

Okay, leaders, where does insight come from?  Sure, you can get it from reading, education, mentors, and, even, mistakes. But my guess is that those are secondary sources.  Without meditation or reflection, none of those sources would produce insight.  It’s when you ruminate on your education or your experience that you develop insight.  Practice reflecting on significant events and routine ones too.  What do you learn?  What’s wise?  What’s suggestive of success for you in the future?  A few minutes here and there in reflection will pay you big dividends.  And, perhaps, you will come to be regarded as insightful.
