Leadership Preparation…

Preparation today makes a difference tomorrow.

What are we preparing for today?

1) God’s guidance in seeking the right priorities.
2) Focus on what is important, not urgent.
3) Trust that if tomorrow doesn’t arrive, we accomplished what matters most.
4) Never miss an opportunity to tell someone, “I love you.”
5) Do something nice for someone who will never find out.
6) Be the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
7) Close the day with prayer giving thanks for the good and bad.

These are a few ideas, but regardless of what happens, if we follow them we will live a full life.

Laying Bricks…

Leadership is rewarding, but it can be difficult. We often spend our time focusing on the negative and challenging areas of leadership. The trick is learning how to turn the negative into positive, to take the challenge and turn it into success.

David Brinkley said, “A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”

Brinkley’s thought is a wonderful advice. The ability to take what comes at us as leaders and use it to lay a foundation for the future is critical to success.

It may not be the most pleasurable approach, but the outcome is worth the time in the wilderness.
