“Have you a written personal growth plan?”
It is a challenging question.
I don’t have one but he has me thinking about it.
My list of life goals isn’t quite enough.
A plan for how to achieve them is needed.
At least a plan for the major goals.
John says the first law of growth is intentionality.
What is it we intend to accomplish?
John’s father paid him to read good books.
His father would not pay him for his chores.
Reading good books were what you did for you.
Chores were what you did for the family.
“I won’t pay you to take out the garbage,” he said.
“I’m not training you to be a garbage man.”
John’s father’s intentions were clear.
He was teaching John to make good choices.
“The choice you make,” John says, “makes you.”
If you choose to be a leader, you must prepare.
Leadership is a life-long series of lessons.
