The Most Important Decision A Leader Can Make

I believe that the most important decision a leader will make is to lead each and every day.

When my kids were growing up, some days I’d drive them to school. As I dropped them off, I’d remind them of our three important decisions each day.

  • Each day creates countless opportunities to make a difference.
  • When we choose to lead each day, we choose to serve.
  • Leading is not about what we gain from others but about what others gain from us.
Let me remind you: when we choose to lead every day, we reenlist in a very special relationship with others. It takes courage each and every day to lead with integrity, work ethic, and inspire others to greatness.

As my mentor John Maxwell, an author of numerous books on leadership has said, “it has been said that there are two kinds of people in life: those who make things happen and those who wonder what happened.”

Here’s to your courage to lead!
