(From the article): The world needs good leadership, our nation needs leaders, our businesses need leaders. Leaders and managers that have a hunger and thirst for knowledge, improvement, and execution.

John Michel's curator insight, March 16, 2013 9:15 PM

It’s all too easy to get bogged down in over-planning, procrastination, and self-doubt. These things are time and energy suckers. You can literally waste days, weeks, and months on these types of unproductive behaviors – and not realize it until it’s too late.

While the average spend time and effort on unproductive tasks, elite achievers spend their time on tasks that move them toward their goals.

There’s good news, though. Elite achievers don’t have a secret weapon or some sort of productivity pill. They’ve just developed certain character traits that make it easier to crush their goals.

That means you could be just one or two small adjustments away from joining the ranks of the elite achievers.

Servant Leadership: A Virtuous Cycle of Service | Robert K. Greenleaf

Servant Leadership: A Virtuous Cycle of Service | Robert K. Greenleaf | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Words matter. The right word makes a world of difference in what’s communicated and understood. Mark Twain observed, “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lighting and a lightning bug.”

John Michel's curator insight, March 15, 2013 9:01 PM

A classic quotation from Greenleaf is: “The servant-leader isservant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead.” Greenleaf held a high and noble view of service and envisioned servant-leaders helping their followers navigate Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, March 16, 2013 1:44 PM

From the article: " A bad day is just a bad day.  Choose not to make it anything more. 

 

Times of adversity will inevitably affect the conditions in which you live and work; yet you don’t have to let it affect who you are and where you’re headed. 

Take note of the setbacks and adjust to them, but don’t expand on them by making them a bigger part of your life.

 

Every day brings new lessons and new possibilities.  There is always a way to take the next step forward on the path you’ve chosen.  Events may be terrible and inescapable at times, but you always have choice – if not when, then how, you may endure and proceed onward.
