Do you need to be committed?

And I’m not talking about a trip to the funny farm.

Do you take your commitments seriously?

If you don’t, why did you make them in the first place? “Well they sounded good at the time, but now that I realize how much work they require, forget it!” HUH?

Your inaction to your commitments undermine your ability to lead.

If you have a vision, you should be able to do the following:

  • Help communicate the vision
  • Lead by example
  • Be consistent
  • Allow for mistakes

Isn’t it funny that these four action steps can be applied to any area of your life?

Beat you to it, Patty. 🙂

    David, You make me laugh. As I was reading this, I was thinking about our Parish Activities Committee and yesterday’s breakfast.
    Share the vision — ask the team for their ideas. I am but one mom — who sees life through my own eyes. The input of others is highly valued. (Lenten Soup Night April 9th — the team’s idea.) We learn so much from each other.
    Lead by example — crazy all the way. (and delegate)
    Be consistent — pray, and pray some more. And then start over.
    Allow for mistakes — especially my own; own them, and learn from them.

    Enjoy the day!

    We challenge each other. If it is a competition (where everybody wins) then so be it! 🙂
