Lead with what’s possible

A recent NY Times interview with Dan Rosensweig, CEO of Chegg, a firm that rents textbooks online and by mail, prompted me about the power of the entrepreneurial spirit.

We’re not reminded often enough about the inspirational force of asking what needs to be done … rather than thinking about all the reasons something can’t be done because no one’s done it before. This abiding spirit is what drives entrepreneurs to find new pathways that haven’t been traversed before.

Start your day with that simple question – “What needs to get done?” rather than “How will I ever get this done?” Changing your perspective will change your focus, turn obstacles into positive energy and open passages to renewed commitment and heightened accomplishment.
