Being good at a lot of things doesn’t make you special. It makes you average and mediocre. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it’s a bad thing to be good at a lot of things, but I believe it’s better to be great at one thing and be successful on it rather than be good at a lot of things and not reach your potential because you are too busy worrying about everything.
I just found this article at Forbes.com written by Amy Reese Anderson and it’s just so true. A lot of leaders tend to forget that leadership is not all about titles and designation. Leadership is about gaining respect and earning you leadership role from those you lead.
Remember, just because you have a hammer it doesn’t mean you need to start swinging.
