Success Thought of the Day – 4/23/21

Leadership is an action, not a position. - Donald McGannon

Success Thought of the Day – 4/22/21

We can make ourselves miserable or we can make ourselves strong – the amount of work is the same. Carlos Castaneda

Success Thought of the Day – 4/21/21

Energy is a precious resource. One that we expend even while at rest. Without it, nothing (e.g., our respiratory system, cell repair, etc.) goes into motion.
When we work, we elevate the expenditure of energy. Thus, we cannot afford to misdirect where we place our time and subsequently our energy.
Be intentional and know that it is “ok” to decide what works for you and what doesn’t.

Paychecks can’t buy passion. – Brad Federman

Success Thought of the Day – 4/20/21

As an individual, find work that is so motivating and compelling that you would willingly pay someone to allow you to do it.

As a leader, create and repeatedly share a vision that inspires those aligned with that purpose to act.

No action is too small when it comes to changing the world. - Cyril Ramaphosa

Success Thought of the Day – 4/19/21

What you do towards what you have been purposed to do matters!

It is natural to want to see the end product, and you should have a vision of what that change looks like when completed. However, just be reminded that meaningful change takes time and progressive steps and is not microwavable. Whatever you do, do not be paralyzed and left motionless.

Dream big and visualize big because your purpose is big.

Get into action and remember, enduring things are built brick by brick.

If we are going to be part of the solution, we have to engage the problems. — Majora Carter

Trust is like the air we breathe. When it is present, nobody really notices. But when it’s absent, everybody notices.  - Warren Buffet

Success Thought of the Day – 4/14/21

As a leader, think about what the air of trust feels like in your organization. If you want to do a litmus test, self-check these two items.

People want to trust that they are working on important things. To be true, people need a clear purpose, mission and vision, and aligned goals. Further, they need resources and to be empowered to do the job.

People want to trust that they can be authentic at work. For that to be true, you must create and nurture a culture where psychological safety exists. In short, an environment for risk-taking that supports change without fear of negative consequences to self-image, status, or career.

If you can check “affirmative” on both of those, you are well on your way!

If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded. – Maya Angelou

We can often overcomplicate things as leaders. Here is a tip, employees are human. – James Rosseau, Sr.

Success Thought of the Day – 4/12/21

There are well over 70,000 books on leadership. Pick your desired area of learning, from philosophy through execution techniques, and you will find vast resources. However, if you keep two things in mind at the end of the day, you will be ahead of the game.

One, people are human and want to be treated as such. Don’t let phrases such as “human assets” and such harden you otherwise. Two, lead in a way that you are proud to share with your grandparent or pastor. That litmus test will keep you in check. 🙂

We work to become, not to acquire. - Elbert G. Hubbard
