Leadership Minute: The Right Path


Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one. – Grandmother Willow, Pocahontas

Not all of your decisions as a leader will be easy. Sometimes in making the right decision you are making the harder one. The unintended consequences of the right decision can cause you to question if it was the right choice. Understand this; while there is great fulfillment in leadership it often comes at a price. Doing the right thing is the result of living the right way. When choosing which path to take don’t always look for the easy one. Not every path will be hard and not every choice will be difficult. In the end, what matters is that you are willing to make that choice. At the end of the day the question is not whether you made the hard choice or the easy choice but whether you made the right choice. Regardless of the outcome let the decisions you make and the paths you walk be driven by what’s right; not what’s easy.
