Why You Need to Play the Long Game
Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
- When we get into crisis mode, we are often tempted to settle for short-term fixes instead of long-term solutions. But, short-term fixes can often create long-term problems.
- When you play the long game, you’re willing to suffer a few minor inconveniences in the short term in order to create a solution that eliminates your challenges for good.
- Leaders trade long-term success for temporary comfort. Builders are willing to withstand temporary discomfort in order to achieve long-term success.
The temptation is real. With so many challenges coming at you each day, it's easy to fall into the trap of looking for a quick fix, even if you know it's temporary. But here's the challenge with short-term thinking. Even if you "fix" the challenge for now, you haven't solved the problem.
That's why on today's episode, we're going to take a look at how Builder's solve challenges, and to be honest, it isn't always pretty. But, if you can withstand the temporary discomfort and focus on building a long-term solution, you can eliminate your challenges once and for all #LikeABuilder.
