Will Rogers once said, ”Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
This idea has implications in every area of life, but certainly in the areas of leadership. Take time to read it again and consider the following ideas.
First, the implication is that we are on the right track. Some people are on the wrong track, and whether they sit still or move in the same direction, if it is the wrong track there are consequences.
Second, there is an intentionality to the idea expressed. We are talking about movement and an intentional movement in the right direction.
Third, the possibility of being run over are great enough when we are moving, but sitting still assures a destructive result, which no one wants to happen.
Fourth, sitting in the same place is not an option. Even if we are on the right track, immobility creates a negative impact on the morale of others, especially followers.
One thought, but it is power packed with information. Think about how it impacts our leadership.
