To gain clarity, there are three questions you can ask yourself, your team members or anyone with whom you collaborate...
1. What do you stand for?
2. What will you not do?
3. Why do you do what you do?
This quick but powerful exercise can work for someone new to the workforce or a highly paid barrister. It can unearth the deep rooted needs of a member of the leadership team and the guy who runs the local garage. It's industry and job level agnostic.
Clutter makes us nervous and stressed. It can derail us from our goals. Clarity will help you find your baseline and silence some of that unnecessary noise. And what you stand for, what you will not do and why you do what you do, will remain.
Ask yourself the three questions and get clear.
