What Others Should Do?

Take You're Own Advice?

Isn’t it tempting to hear a great leadership strategy or tactic and begin to think about all of the people that would benefit from it?

What if every time this happened, we asked instead, “How does this apply to me?”

  1. Jeff,

    You nailed down an idea that is the underpinning for many a circumstance. The idea is this: if people would learn from what was said, it wouldn’t have to be repeated so often. It can be any number of topics, but people fall into the same category of saying, “I know SOMEONE ELSE who could benefit from this.” Leadership and management trainers see this often…but so do phychologists, counselors, prison wardens, and even pastors.

    It is a personally convicting idea to ponder. 🙂 Thank you!


  2. Thanks Bob. Although it may not seem so, much of what I write is really a conversation with myself, to get focused for what the day will bring.

    It’s humbling and energizing to think it may also benefit others.

  3. It’s always nice to see again.

    Even with telling myself this over and over, I still caught myself in (what I can remember) 2 significant instances where I needed to make the application to myself too!

  4. Sorry, just saying it’s not the first time I’ve heard that about applying something to myself instead of just to others.

    So, it was nice to hear again.

    Just in the past week, there was one argument and another thought process where I was doing the convicting, when the same convictions should also have been directed within.
