Leadership, like water, is neither inherently good nor bad, but it is essential. Your desire for water changes depending on the conditions. If you are in a desert and parched, you’ll be desperate for a sip of anything, while those battling floods pray for torrential rains to stop. Some people are afraid of swimming or getting wet, and others frolic in the waves for hours. Water can be sweetened or poisoned; it can become frozen and inaccessible or grow scalding hot.

Story Time

The other day I decided to turn on the camera and read "Give a Damn! How to Lead Better." If you haven't picked up a copy yet, why not? If you have a copy, and three and half minutes, you can follow along with me.

Take on a Challenge Privately

The Disposable Journal is a booklet-sized journal with a week’s worth of daily prompts, designed for you to take on your biggest challenge. There's no reason the world has to know about what you're going through. This unique journal is for busy professionals who want to regain control of their emotions. I’ve been using this system on and off as life’s dramas have unfolded since 2008, and, to be honest; it seldom takes a full week to get me back on track. I want to get this tool into 500 hands this month.
