Leadership is not about which path you take, it is about the choices you make when the roads diverge. It is not learned in a one-day or one-month program. It is learned through a lifetime of education, experience, and reflection.
We all know people who spend more time telling you why they can't do something than they do actually doing it. We also know people who try to please everyone and agree to everything. Both are equally troublesome. So...for the next week, I am taking the phrase "I can't" and "Of course" out of my vocabulary and replacing them both with "I will." What it means is that instead of immediately saying I can't or of course, I will think seriously about what I can do and commit to that affirmatively with "I will..." What do you think? Join me in the challenge. Let us know how it feels to make the shift.
