Say No to the Status Quo

Satisfied with last month’s results in every area of your life?  I know I’m not.

What am I going to do about it? … Make adjustments.

How about you? I suspect you too would be wise to make a couple of changes in the coming month.

No changes = status quo. If you are satisfied, no big deal. But if you know there is something better, then say no to quo!

What is one thing you need to do different during the month of April?

Pay Attention to the Little Things

Pay attention to the little things … little things matter.

I was reminded of this principle from a tweet sent out by Ultramarathon Man, Dean Karnazes, whom I met a few years while running the Northface Endurance Challenge 50k in Pine Mountain, Georgia.

Dean’s tweet, “If you don’t think the little things matter, you’ve never had a pebble stuck in your shoe.”

Recently, while on a trail run, I had to stop and empty my shoe. Baby rock = big problem.

Where is the little stone in your leadership world these days? That irritating debris that is slowing you down?

Just as one car can shut down a freeway, one person’s lack of cooperation can demoralize a team. One missed phone call can cost you a client. One negative comment can turn a happy home into a war zone.

You better pay attention to the little things before it is too late. Whether at home or at the office, think small. Why?

Because little things matter.

Where do you need to think small this weekend?

The Road Always Makes the Difference

The longer you stay on the wrong road, the further you will find yourself from your intended destination.

Robert Frost penned the following words at the end of his poem, The Road Not Taken. “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.”


The road always makes the difference. Are you on the right road? A road that leads to your dreams?

Head down Easy Street, and you can be certain, things will eventually become hard. Shortcut Avenue equals failure to reach your full potential. The Long Way Around, and you end up running in circles.

Why? Because the road always makes the difference.

If today finds you headed in the wrong direction, perhaps it is time for a u-turn.

While the masses will take the path of least resistance, I encourage you to stay on the narrow path.

Remember, your direction will determine your destination … because the road always makes the difference.

Why do you think so many leaders choose the path of least resistance?
