“Always lead never follow”
Do you have the effort to lead and not follow? As I ride my bike uphill this word comes to mind again and again. Effort, Effort, effort, effort,effort, effort.
Leading takes effort – In a race you hit this idea called “The Wall.’ This is when your body and mind feels like giving up. You feel like you can’t go another step. This is when effort kicks in and you just keep going.
Effort defined is mental or physical energy that is exerted in order to achieve a purpose. Effort in leadership is staying in the leader’s position even when you are tired. Effort is going forward. Effort is taking another step. Leaders that exert this energy to overcome “The Wall” usually go far beyond what they thought they could.
Leaders have to put forth a strong effort.
Remember others are following if you are leading, but forth an effort.
