Leadership, Stamina, and Heart

The

cheetah survives on the African plains by running down its prey and can

sprint 70 miles per hour. But, according to the TV documentary I was

watching, the cheetah Cheetah-leaping

can’t sustain that pace for long. Inside its long, sleek body is a

disproportionately small heart. This causes the cheetah to tire out

quickly. Unless the speedster catches its prey on the first try, it has

to abandon the chase. 

Sometimes

we approach leadership the same way. We zoom into projects with

unbridled energy. But lacking energy for sustained effort, we fizzle out

before we finish. We garner more resources, try new strategies, cut

costs, manage the metrics, and vow to start faster and run harder.

What we need may not be more speed, but more staying power–stamina that comes only from having a bigger heart.
