From John Maxwell’s The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

Liberty National - Maxwell Law #17: Priorities

Liberty National – Maxwell Law #17: Priorities

Prioritizing requires leaders to think ahead, to know what’s important, and to see how everything relates to the overall vision.

Liberty National gets it!

Leaders understand activity is not necessarily accomplishment, and busyness does not necessarily equal productivity. To be a leader, you need to know the difference. A leader is the one who climbs the tallest tree, surveys the entire situation, and is willing to yell, “Wrong Jungle”.

Watch as Maxwell explains the Law of Priorities in the video below.

To be a leader, you must learn the three R’s and apply them:

  1. What is Required? If you’re doing something unnecessary, eliminate it. If you’re doing something necessary, but not required of you personally, delegate it.
  2. What gives the greatest Return? Leaders must get out of their comfort zone, but stay in their strength zone. If something can be done 80 percent as well by someone else, delegate it.
  3. What brings the greatest Reward? Life is too short not to do the things you love. Your personal interests energize you and keep you passionate. And passion provides the fuel in your life to keep you going.
