Being A Leader: It’s All About Balance… Except When It Isn’t

Being a leader requires you to balance a lot of different, often conflicting priorities. You even have to make the call between a balanced, diverse (safe) approach and going all in.

You will have much greater success if you stay in the center of your lane, but you will have a much shorter life, if you stay in the middle of the road.

Here are just a few things you have to balance. Feel free to add your own in the comments.

  1. Speak and act with confidence. Be humble.
  2. Never do yourself what someone else is willing and better able to do. Be a servent.
  3. Listen to wise council and to the heart of your people. Stand firm for what is right.
  4. Provide stability. Push your followers to achieve the impossible.
  5. You are here to make decisions now and make them stick. Don’t be rash.

  1. If you are successful they will see your attributes as positive. If you fail… well you can figure it out.

  2. this is probably my favorite.. a real leader knows humiliation and is able to take it. you need to know when to just sit back and shut up. set an example and hope that others will follow.
