Political humor aside, it also spoke to me about knowing our limits. In the cartoon, they refer to the overtime limit – which is important. We need to understand our resource limits and manage them accordingly. That being said, there are times when we need to push the limits to ensure a project is completed properly. (I’ll let you insert your own comment about cheesy politicians here. ha.ha.)
But this also applies to our personal limits. We need to be aware of the boundaries we’ve set for ourselves. And sometimes be prepared to push those limits to grow professionally.
Playing it safe isn’t always a winning strategy. It’s about knowing your limits and the right moments to push the boundaries.0
