Change Your Work and Life

It's so easy as people-followers or leaders-to grumble and complain about the mess in our workplace, community or other organizations.

The problems around us are frustrating and real.

Our complaints may even be valid.

But here's the thing: it's always easy to have an opinion, it's a heap more difficult to do something about it.

Ghandi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world."

What?

It starts with me?

Yes, my friend, it starts with you.

So take a step back, take a deep breath and decide your course of action. 

Go out there and be the person you want to follow, the change you need to see. It starts today, this minute, with this conversation.

Let us know how it goes. 

The Leader is a Servant

Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others. —Jack Welch

The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant. —Max DePree

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has. —Margaret Mead

I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers. —Ralph Nader

(Who knew we'd be quoting Ralph Nader in this space? And on that note, we'll sign off for today.)
