You will never reach your destination if…

Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill famously said:

“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.”

This time of change is bringing us many ‘barking dogs’ to deal with. If we pay equal attention to all of them they will distract us from our priorities.

Inner Leadership contains several tools that keep us focused and on track:

We will never reach our destination if we stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.

Remembering this, and knowing which barking dogs to ignore and how to address the ones that matter, is another step to becoming antifragile.

Do you know which barking dogs to ignore, which to pay attention to, and how to handle them?
