Deep Thought and Relentless Pursuit Lead To Worthy Achievements

Leadership Quote from JRD Tata
"Nothing worthwhile is ever achieved without deep thought and hard work." ~ J. R. D. Tata

My reflections on this quote start with how we define what is worthwhile in the context of our leadership role. 

Goals & Outcomes That Are Worthy

C-Suite leaders have many things competing for attention. Identifying, prioritizing, and defining the outcomes or goals that matter for the long-term sustainability of the organization's success will help sift the worthy goals from the others. 

The Role of Deep Thought. 

In this fast-paced world, strategic decisions that have a long-term impact need deep thought and analysis. The highest quality of decisions comes from deep thought and seldom from quick thinking. Deep thought involves understanding the decision's complexities, nuances, and implications before acting. Leaders need to create an environment that gives time and space to themselves and their teams to enable high-quality solutions to their challenges. They take the time to think and act fast—a good book to read on this Time To Think by Nancy Kline.

Relentless Pursuit 

Finally, putting in a high level of effort in the initiatives, pursuing them relentlessly, being adaptive in the face of obstacles and resilient during adversity, and persevering till the goal is reached will help leaders and their teams reach their goals.
