Leadership decisions will rarely gain 100% agreement

Teen and seniors
An ordinary moment yesterday.


Leadership decisions will rarely gain 100% agreement.

This is insidiously tricky.

When we want to please everyone we do not follow our instinct.

Yesterday my instinct said we need to get outside and walk.

Will we send the wrong message if we leave for an hour? Is it selfish? Is it right? Is it helpful?

When our health is something we are willing defend, we should never lose it.

Never, no matter the cost?
