How are you at getting things done?

The saying “Git R Done” is a phrase that comedian, Larry the Cable-Guy, made popular. In addition to the laughter that this phrase evokes, Git R Done is also a forgotten leadership skill.

Great leaders know how to Git R Done! 

Truly great leaders have developed, cultivated, and practiced the skill of execution.

Why do many leaders NOT Git R Done?  Based on my coaching of ministry leaders, the top three reasons for not executing are:

  • Knowledge Problem ~ a plan has not been developed.
  • Courage Problem ~ fearful of the end results or the dreaded change that will follow.
  • Comfort Problem ~ it’s simply easier to do nothing, or they are being rewarded for not executing.

How are you at getting things done?  Need some help?  Consider the following coaching questions:

  • On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your ability to Get R Done?  (10 = you routinely take action on high priority items.  1= You are unable to execute.)
  • Who do you know that regularly gets things done? What can you learn from them?
  • Which of the three common reasons listed above, if addressed, would contribute the most to your level of execution?  (Knowledge, Courage or Comfort)
All the best to you,
