Success Thought of the Day – 4/26/21
Pursuing what we are purposed to do is often less about the mystery of “what” and more about the paralysis of answering “how.”
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.
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.
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.

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!

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. 🙂
