Observation is one of the most powerful exercises for leaders.
Leadership is about people and unless we observe how God works to provide opportunity to lead, we will miss the possibility of helping others.
There is an ancient Chinese proverb that teaches this principle: “If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap. If you want happiness for a day — go fishing. If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.”
Helping others can only occur when leaders observe the people God places in their lives each day.
