Is this the one? When you are staring down that huge hill in front of you, that problem you are facing, that story on the news that is making your blood boil, that idiot you see all the time that is driving you crazy, do you ask yourself how far are you willing to press the issue. What are you willing to do to win the battle ? What lengths are you willing to go to get your way ? What is the price you are willing to pay to win?
Is this the hill you want to die on? What if you lose the fight and you do not have anything left to fight for?
These are the hard choices that everyone has to face in both their personal and professional lives and too often I see folks choosing the wrong hills to fight for. So before you gear up for a huge battle for the next uber critical thing you just have to fight for…ask yourself … Is this it? Is this the hill you want to die on ?
