Before you say yes, ask yourself:

  • Are you strategic, analytical, and communicate your ideas with ease?
  • Does thinking about your team’s success fill you with passion and enthusiasm?
  • Are you organized and task-driven, and can’t quite get through the day without checking off your tasks on your to-do list?
  • But most of all, are you able to separate what needs to be done from what can be done, focusing on the 20% of activities that generate 80% of the results. Impact focused versus activity driven.
