How do you handle ambiguity?
I was once told that high performance leaders must be comfortable with ambiguity. The answers are not always obvious. Sometimes, the answers aren't even discoverable. Move forward even when you don't know what the outcome will be.
That's fine. I think it's more than that. Ambiguity is fine if you're already fuzzy about your goals. We can make peace with ambiguity when we are navigating uncharted territory. But it's more of a paradox than orthodox. While we must not be unhinged by ambiguity, it is clarity that opens the door to achieving our goals.
Clarity tells us if we are operating within our values. Clarity tells us if our goals are on track for success or derailing from inaction.
Absolute clarity of purpose prevents endless amounts of wasted time.
And as a centered, high performance leader you don't want wasted time.
How clear are you about your purpose?
