LEADERSHIP TO-DO-LIST

Before we go through the list, let's examine first our LEADERSHIP capabilities.

The only way to get through all the list is to accept that things might not go the way we want it to be but still believe that everything will work out as it should be.

Every great leader is a "flexible" leader!

Flexibility (adj) - designs that can adapt when external changes occur.

Are you a flexible leader?

What are the benefits of becoming a flexible leader?

  • Leaders with the most varied responses ultimately wins.
  • Most great leaders do not fall apart when change and challenges show up.
  • Great leaders react positively to even the biggest challenges.

Now that we've gotten that straighten up, let's go through our list.

Here are 5 things every flexible leaders must do:

DIG UP YOUR INNER TREASURE

Let us remember, that TALENT coupled with DESIRE will always bring out our inner treasures. 
"Leadership success is the process of excavating the treasures of the invisible soul in order to bring dreams, desires, and talents into the visible world."


REMOVE A DISEASED TOOTH

This spells character and attitude! Remove the bad stuff in your life and move forward. For example:
  • Physical (messy study area)
  • Attitude (laziness)
  • Relationships (B.I.)
"New things that actually have hope for the future cannot appear until you get rid of what was taking up the space that the new thing needs."


WATCH THE WHOLE FILM

Get some worthwhile goals! Ask yourselves, “What will happen in the end?"

Here's how:
  • Script a Happy Ending (What's your end in mind - your definition of success)
  • Survive the scary scenes (Determination, Persistence and Oh, never give up)
  • Give an Oscar-Winning Performance (Remember it's more the journey than the destination)



RETIRE SUPERMAN
Put the Man of Steel out of the job! Do not wait for a Superman to do things for you and start being a hero yourself.
Leaders continually ask themselves, “What can I do to make the situation better?”
Initiative (n) - the ability to take necessary action, on your own, which gets the job done.

So how do we put Superman out of the job:
  • Spring into action (go and do something, don't let others tell you what to do)
  • Get out of the Phone Booth (don't procrastinate and over-analyze everything - if you have a plan then execute it)
  • Do something super (Give everything your 110%)
“Ask God’s blessings on your work. But don’t ask him to do it for you.” – Flora Robinson


BE AN INSECT

Lastly, work hard and work smart! Get over your unrealistic wants and go do what you can with whatever you have right now.

Here are some words of wisdom from the tiny insect world:
  • Go to the ant you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. – Proverbs 6:6-8
  • Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs. – Henry Ford
  • Leaders achieve big goals by taking small steps over time.
