Our Best Self

Jul 22, 2019

On this episode,

To be our best selves, we must challenge and grow. My challenge today is - are you the person who changes the toilet paper roll when empty, or do you leave the new one on top of the old? Hint - a true leader and owner, always changes it. Because it isn't what the task is that matters - it is how it's completion transforms your business.

What is the hard work that must get done? Do you remember tasks that you used to do, but then have "grown out of", or feel like you are beyond. One thing I find from deep observations of great leaders is their constant ability to just roll their sleeves up and work.

Entrepreneurs, leaders, and owners of businesses are often jokingly stated to wear every hat - from janitor to mailman to the CEO and all the jobs in between. These tasks, these humbling unsexy tasks are the lifeblood of an organization. They define the foundational pieces that make an enterprise function and speak to the culture of that organization.

Here I share about humbling tasks and their lessons. My question to you - if you aspire to be a leader or are looking to become one, are you as energetic and focused on the humbling tasks as they glamours ones?

Would you change it?
