This Moment

Have you every pondered what you would do if you were inside the movie, “Groundhog Day”?  With no barrier on time limits, would you learn several languages; scale the tallest mountains in the world; learn how to fly a plane; take part in an archaeological dig; navigate the Amazon, Parana, and Madeira rivers in South America; become an Astronaut; master the games of cricket and rugby; play the cello; build that special relationship?

Pick those things that you dream about and begin pursuing them, for we do not remember days, but we remember moments.

Life is to be lived.  The best way to live is to accept each second, minute, hour as an unrepeatable miracle, because in reality that is what they are.

Problems. We All Have Them

Problems. We All Have Them

There are days and then there are “days”.  Some people see the glass as half full. Others see it as half empty. And then there are those who see their glass as half empty with dirty water. Nothing is more disheartening to people then seeing those that surround them in an unhappy state of mind.

Problems, we all have them. Even the greatest among the living have their disappointments. No one is exempt. However problems give us the opportunity for growth.  They make us think, stretch our imagination, venture into unchartered territory, and to question the status quo.

You can triumph over any obstacle that you encounter in your path if you are unwavering, courageous, and methodical. Never be fainthearted.  Be determined, but never bitter. Permit nothing to dissuade you from pursuing the outcome you have set for yourself.

No matter how enormous a problem may present itself to be, just remember that mountains, once scaled, provide an exceptional view from the top.

Thinking Differently

Thinking Differently

Our frame of mind has a great deal to do with our effectiveness when dealing with others.  Whether it is interrelating with those we work with, networking with new acquaintances, or having a discussion with family or friends.  When we display annoyance, frustration, rudeness or exasperation, those around us begin to feel uneasy, uptight, and tense. On the other side of the coin, when we are amusing, amiable, relaxed, or sociable, positive connections are made.

Restorations restore relationships. Start with your heart and then move on to your mind.

Connectivity

Connectivity

To effectively impact a life, a relationship must be forged, trust built, honesty spoken, commitment made, and accountability established.

Now you’re getting somewhere.

Becoming Natural

Becoming Natural

Whenever leaders face a problem, they automatically evaluate it, measure it, pick it apart, and begin solving it. In time this becomes the natural thing to do.

Only Human

Only Human

Those that hold the label “leader” must not only know their strengths and blind spots, capability and limitations, potential and Achilles’ heel but also their current frame of mind. Why?  Because leaders are human and can just as easily hinder progress as they can works towards creating it.

Multiple Directions

Multiple Directions

Everything that happens around us does so in the context of a bigger picture.  Doesn’t it make sense to start looking at things from a variety of perspectives?  We need not only to pay attention to what is happening in the moment, but to discern where we have just come from and in what direction we are heading.

Seeing What Others Do Not

Seeing What Others Do Not

Just as the blood flows through our veins and keeps us alive and well, leadership vision is the lifeblood of any business.  It is what gives us the strength to take the next step forward into areas where others fear to tread. It provides meaning to the reoccurring challenges and trials that we encounter moment by moment.  It allows us to see beyond the fog of doubt or mist of apprehension.

Having vision is where great leaders earn their stripes of leadership, and such leadership makes all the difference.  Leadership is more than just having the ability to influence or manipulate others.  It is about reminding people of what they are attempting to accomplish, the value and character behind it, and why it matters.  Vision is imagining the best possible outcome, reaching out, and grasping it.

Changing Directions

Changing Directions

Leaders can maintain direction, but often they can’t change it. Systems and processes can do only so much. To move people in a new direction you need influence.

I Really Do Not Know

I Really Do Not Know

Great leaders are eager to gain input and are not afraid to admit when they do not know something.  They surround themselves with bright people and seek input in areas where they need expertise.
