In sports, we talk about leaving everything on the field as a reference to not holding back during the game. We never want to have the clock run out while we still have energy and capacity for “more”. If the clock is winding down, give it all you’ve got to win the game! You can always rest and recover later.
It’s the same at work. We’re counting on you to give it all you’ve got while you are here. Don’t hold anything back. Don’t give yourself margin. Let’s take this project across the finish line. We can rest later.
Thanks for listening!
PS: I’ve left it all on the field and now am headed out on vacation for a couple of weeks. I look forward to sharing when I return!
