Leadership Minute: Late So Soon

late

How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flown. How did it get so late so soon? – Dr. Seuss

Leadership is a journey. Each day, week, month, and year you have the privilege of leading is a testament to your resolve. Have you hit some rough spots along the way? Absolutely. Have you overcome some setbacks and disappointments? Of course. But one thing is certain – leaders like you are the ones who make the world a better place. Why? You care. And you are passionate not just about leading others but also about leading yourself. You realize that in order to be a better leader tomorrow you have to commit yourself to growing and learning today. Every selfless act of leadership is a testament to that growth. Today let me encourage you to see the bigger picture. It’s not about you. But the life of leadership you live today is a model for the next generation. Soon you will ask, ‘How did it get so late so soon?’ But not to worry, you’ve been a great teacher.
