Raymond Feist writes, “Never accept the proposition that just because a solution satisfies a problem, that it must be the only solution.” A one-only solution mindset is limiting to the great leader’s choices and selections. Challenges and opportunities can be viewed through many different lenses creating multiple options suggesting different dimensions for consideration. Each one provides a unique way forward, an alternative that further opens our eyes and mind to new possibilities.
An unknown author wrote, “Open-minded people don’t care to be right, they care to understand. There’s never a right or wrong answer. Everything is about understanding.” The words suggest the need to move beyond a single answer to a more comprehensive consideration and understanding of alternative views. For great leaders, there is always more than one way, another option. In your search for answers, continuously look for options… a lot of them. May their multitude bring exponential value to the richness of your choices, and may their impact contribute to the efficacy and value of your extraordinary leadership.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
