Less is more – a hard idea for most people to embrace. We live in a culture that advocates the opposite. We falsely assume that more words, more activity, more things, more programs, more products and even more relationships will be a good thing. I’ve been as guilty as the next person on this one, but Henry Cloud helped me tremendously when he wrote Necessary Endings. He’s convinced me that a leader’s ultimate success will, in large part, be determined by his or her ability to embrace the idea that less is not only more, it is essential!
