It seems I keep having to apologize for not writing – where does the time go? Perhaps a sign I need to go back to the law of process and plan out my priorities! To my regular readers, thanks for your patience in sticking with me and for visiting my site often. Thanks too for your encouragement to keep writing.
Today I am writing about the 21 Laws of Leadership: Law of Addition.
“If the world followed you, would you be please with where you took it?” (Neale Donald Walsch)
I recently used this quote in one of my lunch and learn sessions. It started me thinking about the Law of Addition. This law says there are only 2 things we are doing - we are either adding value to or subtracting value from those around us. Adding value doesn’t take huge acts. We can add value through listening, actively reaching out, respecting others, helping or, serving others.
Are you making things better for those that follow you?
John Maxwell reminds us that “it is not about how far we advance ourselves but how far we advance others that counts”. He says by adding value to others, we become a better leader.
How can you add value to your significant other or loved one today?
How can you add value to a co-worker today?
How can you add value to a friend today?
How can you add value to a child today?
I would love to hear how you add value to others so let me know. With your permission, I will share your story in an upcoming blog.
Thanks for letting me add value to you.
