Service is Never Enough

1363120371_d0ec8a57b2_mIt's not about you.  Or me.  Or the office.  Or the big leather chair.  Or the title.  In fact, the leadership thing is really just a matter of getting the job done.

The job is always to serve.

The catch, of course is that service is but the percussion behind the song.  If I serve my kids but don't lead them, I've fallen short.  If the CEO shows up but doesn't show others how to excel, she's fallen short.

To whatever degree I then marry my service with my leadership, I succeed. And success means making a difference one day at a time.
