Knowing when to leave is tough!
Monday, December 06, 2010
If you met me in real life...some of you would LOVE ME and some...probably wouldn't...and that is OK!
If you saw me in a social situation...you would probably think I was pretty quiet!
If you met me or experienced me in a leadership position...99% of you would think I was AMAZING! I know this! To inspire is my life strength! But somehow...that strength is not as strong in cyber world!
So...after much thought and with a heavy heart...I am stepping down immediately from all co-leader positions!
In OKC...Courtney is AMAZING! And the 10 or so that are active...rock it out...but with over 6500 members...more should be active and despite individually beating bushes...I couldn't drive any action.
On Making It Happen...The team RUNS ITSELF! Jon is the strong, silent leader in the back...and knows when to step in. Jerome is a FITNESS ROCK STAR and has/takes the time to build one on one relationships with EVERY MEMBER OF THE TEAM!
I have always thought I was a multi-tasker, but when I lead, I don't focus on me...and then I GET CHEATED!
I have many different jobs, a business, and a few VERY IMPORTANT PEOPLE in my life THAT NEED ME...and I HAVE PUT THEM AFTER SPARK...and THAT IS NOT FAIR TO THEM! And all the while...I wasn't giving all I SHOULD to my teams!
I will remain Sparking, Inspiring, and a MEMBER of only ONE TEAM...because at THIS POINT in MY LIFE and in MY RELATIONSHIPS...that is how I CAN BE SUCCESSFUL!
So...not good-bye...more of a hidden lesson in balance...that I encourage each of you to reflect and learn from! And if you have to make a change...remember...knowing when to leave is tough!
