Plan to Matter and Make a Difference as a Leader
Most people are uncomfortable acknowledging they are a leader. They don’t feel they deserve it and can’t believe that someone is paying them. Why is that? Every day, moments pass us by that are leadership moments. They not only occur in our businesses, but they happen in our families, with our friends, at the grocery, everywhere. Most we don’t see, and many we see but don’t act on. To achieve anything in life, there needs to be a focus on the end result. Have you looked at your leadership over time – the past 6 months or year? Stop that, and begin looking at it every day. This is day one. Who do you want to be today, as a manager, parent, friend, colleague? Decide what that is and go do it – EVERY DAY. To succeed at anything you must do something every day. Start now. This is Day One.
