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’. And if we pay attention to them all they will distract us from our goals.

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.

Choosing which to throw stones at and which to ignore is another step to becoming antifragile.

What barking dogs do you have in your life at the moment? Do you know which to ignore, which to pay attention to, and how to handle them?
