Episode 12: “All In” on Rituals
Better to take it one step at a time
Relaxed Leaders focus on making improvements while trying to be considerate of the interests of others – but that doesn’t mean that everything we do has to immediately benefit everyone. In fact, many of the improvements we need to make are improvements to ourselves.
