We Live in Interesting Times!
This statement has been made over and over through the centuries. And, once again we are in “interesting times.” So what makes this particular time period – interesting? Is it the economy? Is it the social actions of some or the many? Is is the global nature of interaction? Is it the crazy college football season of 2008? Really, that is causing this “interesting times” thing?
I believe that it is a series of things all happening at the same time. Uncertainty is the only constant that we have that we can count on. And uncertainty leads to need for Great Leadership.
Leadership is the missing link or key for progress by any group or organization in these interesting times. People need the security of knowing that someone will take action and make decisions for the whole. We have lived through an era of greed and self-centeredness whereby so called leaders have been making decision to benefit themselves – rather than the whole.
This is the key to our Future. Leaders must begin thinking about the good of the whole. How to make good decisions that benefit the group or the organization rather than their pocket or bank account. To get back to the progress and growth of the past, we need excellent leaders who can look into the future and make decisions that anticipate where the future is going to be – and get us there faster.
We can start by taking responsibility for our actions today. Ask yourself – What Can I Do That Will Help My Team, Group, Community or Organization? Then actively look for alternative solutions – choose the best one and launch. If we wait for someone else to do, we are surrendering our opportunities without any effort. Effort gives us the confidence to keep going and doing the right things.
What are YOU doing to create your future in a meaningful way? Set Goals and Take Action. Be a Player and make things happen so You Can Make for Interesting Times.
