We are all on this journey together. Each day as we go through life we are given the chance to choose what we will do. We can make a difference today or we can let the opportunity pass us by. I am sharing in this space not to tell you that I have it all figured out. I am far from it. I have let it pass me by more times than I can count. However, there are times that I have siezed the moment. I will try to tell you stories about these times. I know these moments have the power to make a real impact! And the crazy thing is that they are not spectacular things- they are often really small things. Saying: “I really appreciate your smile..” to a friendly clerk. Getting the door for the Fed Ex guy. Cleaning up your mess (ahead of your wife!). All minor items- but they can have a lasting impact as you touch the hearts of others in a very personal way and model behavior to others around you. This is true leadership. I have learned that leadership is not about being the boss with all the answers- it’s about serving others with respect and humility. We are all leaders. I believe that leadership is for everyone!
I hope that you will enjoy the stories that I share in this space. I will do my very best to keep the posts short and to the point. I hope that these posts will open the eyes of your heart to the tremendous opportunity that we have to serve others. There is no greater gift in life!
