As a boy I loved cutting grass, especially at my grandfather’s house. At home I used a regular push mower – seriously hard work in our hilly yard. At Papa’s, though, cutting grass was different. He had a self-propelled lawnmower. Just check the gas and oil, crank the mower, engage the self-propelled mechanism and off you went. The lawnmower pulled itself. Cutting grass was easy, more enjoyable, and required less effort.
As leaders, most of us are looking for the human version of that self-propelled lawnmower. We want people who drive their own performance, doing the things every day that lead to success. The reality, though, is that most people are not naturally selfdriven. It’s called the 10/80/10 Principle. Only about 10% of the people in most organizations are true self-starters. A small percentage (10%) will not be successful regardless of what you do.
