Can’t remember where I found this quote, but I love the extreme-ownership-ness of it:
I used to complain about not having enough time to run. Then I planned my ideal week and saw my time boundaries right there as events on the calendar. I pushed them around, removed some, combined others, and made time. Now I’m a runner.
I used to complain that writing performance evaluations was hard and took forever. Then I realized my boundary was an implicit expectation that managers write performance evaluations alone. Now, I write them together with each direct report, slowly over the course of the cycle.
