For the past 2 weeks I have been in multiple meetings. Meetings with multiple people, multiple executives, multiple leaders, and multiple stakeholders. People from the United States, China, Latin America, Europe and other destinations from around the globe.
What I have noticed over and over again is the time and effort people put into asking for permission.
So much energy is focused on preparing information, preparing to be “right,” and preparing to say something that will make someone else choose us.
We spend all of our time and energy in hope that someone will pick us.
We forget, we can choose ourselves.
In choosing ourselves, then we can devote all of that time and energy into actually making change happen.
For me, it means making change and impacting care at the N of 1.
