The Efficiency of Courage

By avoiding the tough questions or the difficult situations, we make extra work for ourselves. We tiptoe around topics, we don't ask specifics in fear of being ridiculed and we just plain stay away from tough situations if at all possible.

So since we do all this, the only answer is do more. More work, more ideas, more meetings, more estimates, more hours and more worry.

If we mustered up our courage, we would cut through the crap, face the uncomfortable truths and at the same time, show the people we're dealing with that we respect ourselves, our time and our minds. Which would influence them to do the same.

That's what courage can do. It increases efficiency. It cuts through the clutter. And, since it's in short supply, it gets attention and results.
