Shot 101: ROASTING GAME

By: Tom Newhouse in Leadership, 3 weeks 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.” —­­

AS A RIFLE, I’M NO bible scholar, but I have seen the truth of Proverbs 12: 27.  It says, “The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt” (ESV).  Man, oh man, is that ever borne out in the hunting fields every fall.
It’s also borne out in organizations year around.  Diligence—staying after it with careful and persistent effort—scores big, time after time.  You want to succeed?  Apply diligence.  Sure, clever schemes and crafty approaches can produce too, and in splashy ways, but they are seldom reliable.  Diligence faithfully delivers.  Diligence “brings home the bacon.”
