I have been going to gym for almost 2 months now. And I'm loving it. I've lost a couple of KG's, I feel more focused, more energetic... its delicious.
Now some things that I have noticed on my journey:
1) In the past I used to gym with a partner. My gym sessions took about 2 hours. I couldn't always do the routine I wanted, but I couldn't miss gym either as I would be letting my partner down.
2) I now gym alone. My sessions take 1/2 the time and I can fit it into my lunch break. I do the routine I want, and I can fly through it. However, the down side is that I don't get pushed as hard, and of course, its far easier to let myself off the hook and not go to the gym that day.
Its like that in leadership. I can forge ahead alone and get where I am wanting to go fairly quickly. But I reach that destination alone, and one can only accomplish so much.
But taking others with you on the journey... is slow and frustrating. Very frustrating! But you get there together and together we can accomplish a multiplied effect far far greater than I could have achieved on my own.
So I guess the question is... who are you taking with you on your leadership journey?
I'd love to hear your comments : )
