I Proudly Carry

... and here's why ...

It’s true!
I’m the proud carrier of a brand new library card.
My first?  Not at all.  From the earliest I can remember, I had my very own library card that we used every single week … especially during the summer.  As a teacher, I ‘upgraded’ to a card that would allow me to check out twice the number of books for double the time.
Where did those cards go?  And, why?
I don’t know and I don’t know.  All I know is that within the last month, I have been pondering why I don’t access that amazing free resource.  The only answer I could think of was just plain laziness.
I scooted over to the library, went up to the desk and asked for a new card.  Come to find out I was still in their system.  Even though I had “dropped them” temporarily, they had not dropped me.  I felt special.  Ha!
Zero wait time. Out I came with my new card, new resources to tap into, a new place to settle in for several hours of work each week and new sense that I had gotten back to some sort of basic thing that I never should have left to begin with.
My card?  Well, the gal asked me if I wanted a business-look or something fun.
And, of course I chose FUN!!!!
What about you?  
Do you tap into all the offerings of your public library?
What other resources are at your fingertips that you could re-engage with?
I bet the person behind the counter at your local library would love to see you!!

Leadership decisions are never in isolation from those we love… …

C is for …

C is for CANDY!!  Peanut M&Ms, Jelly Bellies, Maple Nut Goodies, Almond Joy, Peach Rings … just about anything sweet will do, thank you very much.

As I’ve been listening to podcasts, reading books, engaging in meaningful conversations and pondering personal growth, it has struck me just how many important “C” words there are in leadership world.

Normally a “C” would represent average on a test or term paper.  What we will be exploring together is anything but average!  These words, if intentionally pursued and excelled at, will grow our leadership in A++ ways.

Ready for a challenge? (oh look, there’s one…)  This is going to be a fun series.

Come along.  It’s going to be a blast!!  And, bring the candy …

Relationships are messy.
I needed this reminder today:
“It’s almost impossible to persuade someone that he’s wrong.
Almost impossible to make your argument louder and sharper and have the other person say, ‘I was wrong and I will change my mind.’
