“Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flow charts. It is about one life influencing another.” John C. Maxwell
“Leadership is an action, not a position.” Donald McGannon
“The challenge of leadership is to be strong but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not a bully; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor but without folly.” Jim Rohn
A Time for Leadership?
Have diligence on the job … that is the beginning of leadership.
Become a mentor, provide direction and encouragement to others...that is the beginning of leadership.
Have a willingness to pass on your knowledge, wisdom, and passion, to those that are want to learn, without reservation or hesitation...that is the beginning of leadership.
Willingly wanting to help someone learn a new job or boost someone’s spirits when they are down...that is the beginning of leadership.
One of the constants in my life had been my interest in Motivation, Leadership, Management, and Goal Setting. That interest led me to run a website and podcast back in 2005 called Motivation on the Run. It revolved around those particular interests.
Then life happened and it slowly passed into insignificance. My wife and I began a new business and made a physical move to get nearer to our new granddaughter.
Now life is happening again. I’ve wanted to revive a website and podcast on these topics but the needs of others are taking precedence. No complaints, just the facts.
So where does this leave me? With planning.
What do I want the new website and podcast to focus on? Only one aspect of the four intetests specializing on one topic? It’s difficult to pair down since all these topics are highly integrated. One cannot exist without a relationship to one or more of the others. Intertwined is the word that comes to mind.
Hince the planning. Between the mindmaps in Xmind and outlines in Evernote I can be as confused as all get out.
Confusion is my middle name the last five months.
Currently I’m in the local Whataburger having a completely free breakfast. I redeemed a reward for a taquito topped off with a senior coffee. Best deal in town.
