Some days feel really draining and demotivating. Some days lack color.
My leadership life is filled with difficult people, and really great people.
My leadership life is filled with work decisions, personal decisions, home decisions . . . decisions.
My leadership life is not a straight line. Nor is it smooth.
To lead to the best of my ability is a worthy endeavor.
To lead with integrity and with an orientation of empowering those around me can create a climate of trust, faithfulness, and creativity.
I want my aim to always be to raise up more leaders . . . leaders who can out lead me.
I believe that my small story fits into a much larger one. The larger story is full of meaning. It is truly significant. It wreaks of destiny.
Therefore my small story must have meaning too. If there is an ultimate Author, then my daily words and works matter.
I am a treasured possession.
I am beloved, well pleasing in His sight.
My leadership matters.
For you are my rock and my fortress;
and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me;
you take me out of the net they have hidden for me,
for you are my refuge.
Into your hand I commit my spirit;
you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God. Psalm 31:3-5
