My friend Shawn Lovejoy has a new book out … Measuring Success: Your Path to Significance, Satisfaction, & Leading Yourself to the Next Level.
Shawn is a proven leader and has committed his life to helping other leaders thrive in their calling. In my first read through his book, I highlighted a few statements. Take a peek and then dive into the book for yourself.
- A true leader is willing to confront reality and this means confronting the status quo: first in us, then in others, then within our organization!
- The only way we can have no critics is to never try to do anything significant.
- A leader doesn’t take people where they want to go. A leader takes people where they need to go!
- Listen, pessimism and perfectionism will suck the life out of you.
- Don’t wait for a slower, better day to get your life in order. Start today. Traction equals satisfaction.
- Share your holy discontent with the status quo.
- Vision leaks. Life has a way of causing the vision to leak out of us. Sometimes it gets squeezed out. Sometimes it gets kicked out of us!
- The secret of your success will be found in your daily routine. If you want to change your life, you will simply need to change your habits.
- Every day, when I wake up, I face a critical choice: make my life about serving me and my agenda, or make my life about serving God by serving others!
- Measure your success not by the kingdoms you build, but by the people you build.
- There is a unique sense of rest and peace that comes in knowing we do not have to do it like someone else has done it or is doing it.
- Nothing makes me feel more successful than when I have been successful at home.
