Summary: The author asserts there are two kinds of results leaders achieve, standard results and deep results. All leaders know what standard results are, but few leaders know what deep results are. In long run, standard results, though necessary, are far less important than deep results.
Leadership For Deep Results: Without Them Are You Wasting Your Leadership And Your Life? (Part Two) by Brent Filson
How does one go about getting deep results? There are many paths up this mountain. But one path is straight and steep and clear. That is path of Leadership Imperative.
I WILL LEAD PEOPLE IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY NOT ONLY ACHIEVE THE RESULTS WE NEED BUT THEY ALSO BECOME BETTER AS LEADERS AND AS PEOPLE.
The Imperative has two parts: one is results-accomplishments and other is self betterment.
You are never more powerful as a leader as when, in getting results, you are helping others be better than they are -- even better than thought they could be. Guided by Leadership Imperative, you'll find yourself realizing deep results.
Deep results are not a measurement or a direction. They are not a central purpose. They are a process of being. They are not something achieved. They are an achieving — taking place not at a special place in a special time but at every place at all times.
You are deep results before you know that you are. Though deep results are easy, though often they do not come easily.
We are this mind/body in this space/time continuum. We know that. But to realize it, we must live it. To live it, we must seek it in our living. And that knowing and living and seeking is deep results.
The task that we shoulder reveals our heart to world. Deep results show our soul to world.
Examples of deep results:
--With disasters of Franco-Prussia War tumbling down upon Paris, a remarkable event took place, word of which spread like wildfire through city. The great author Victor Hugo, exiled for 19 years, had come back to Paris. Traveling through German lines, through war-ravaged countryside, he had come into city on virtually last train. He had come to share sufferings with Parisians in their darkest hour when his arriving meant virtual imprisonment in city. Throngs gathered at station to applaud him. One man shouted over crowd, "If defeat brings us Victor Hugo, we couldn't be better rewarded!" – deep results.
