So what?

What a great question.  Simple.  But great.

Few things frustrate me these days.  In less than three weeks, I’ll turn 50.  Can’t wait.  What a milestone.

There are so many frustrating things out there.

It’s pretty common that people complain about aging.

But I want to know, “Why?”

Rather than complain, roll over and let it happen, there is an alternative, I believe.

So what?

Exactly.  I figure it’s an easy choice – be a statistic.

Become one of the majority that complains, or become one of the minority that just gets on with staying healthy.

Same with the economy.

Complain about it, or get on with the business of preparing for the upturn.

Historical adversity and embracing change.  Everyone you lead is taking their cue from you.

Here’s what they’re observing:

  1. What you say.
  2. What you don’t say.
  3. Your behaviors.
  4. Your attitude.
  5. Your focus.

Adversity doesn’t develop character, it reveals it.

Make it a great day to take look in the mirror and think about those five areas.  When you get back to work, be a champion.  Your people are expecting this from you now, more than ever.

Why is it so hard to get great results?

You know what I think?

I think most people don’t know what the goal is.

You buy that?

Doesn’t matter.


It doesn’t matter what I think.  What matters is what you think.

Want to test your leadership influence?

Ask the people who know you to describe what they think your vision is.

Adversity doesn’t develop character, it reveals it.
