The best leadership training - Problem solving for managers

This is one of the best pieces of advice a leader can learn
Memorize it and quote it to others.

"Do what you can, with what you have, from where you are."

In 1919 Theodore Roosevelt was pronounced the 26th President of the United States. He is well remembered for his energetic leadership.

There will always be some managers who will shy away from taking action because they claim that they don't have:

  • Enough time
  • Enough money
  • The right software
  • The right hammer
  • Boots big enough
  • A penknife small enough

In short, conditions are not yet right, so "we should put it off again".

The net result is that NO forward steps are taken;
Momentum is lost and replaced with inertia.
The Theodore Roosevelt Formula is the antidote to procrastination

"Do what you can, with what you have, from where you are."

Let us look closely at the meaning

"Do what you can..."
There is much you cannot do. But there are SOME things that you CAN do.
Focus your mind exclusively on the elements of the job that you can do. And put your mind on that section of the job.
As you pour effort into the area that you CAN do, it will expand. You will find that your accomplishments will make the previously impossible, possible.

With what you have....

We know that the tools at your disposal are not the optimum tools.
But you do have some tools. You do have some resources.
Use the ones you have and you will find that as you make forward progress, more will become available.

Where you are.....

We know that you are not starting from an ideal situation.
Some people have improved circumstances and that things "aren't fair".
Start from where you are. There is nowhere else for you to begin.
The important point is that you BEGIN.
