Leadership vs. Friendship

When you lead, friendship should not be the number 1 priority ; as inevitably there will be extended  tolerance for non performance and that will be detrimental for him/her, yourself and the company too.


Continue to demand the best from your subordinates. Be strict, be demanding and if friendship can grow,  that is great.


As a leader, your primary task is to focus on  performance and to grow others : & not being a “nice buddy” to everyone

Priorities

In your daily life …..

What is your ULTIMATE priority

?Who is your ULTIMATE  priority ?

It is OUR CHOICE on where we wish to focus our energy most. What ever our choices are, it is ultimately a free world.

Choose your path correctly and live a path with integrity and dignity.

Avoid dissapointing others who has relied on you, believed in you, trusted you and had hopes on you.

Best to walk a life with a clear conscience than to live a life-time behind a mask of hypocrisy ; as they will ultimately see who YOU truly are !!

Someday, somehow, someone will ask …. shall you be my PRIORITY if I am not yours ?

Goals ….

Your perception on how you see your GOALS  will determine your mental attitude, your beliefs and THE ACTION you will take.


It will govern your daily behaviour.
Stretch your sights …

Aim for the EXTRAORDINARY .Do not limit yourself by “thinking small”.

Aim for the stars and fly high. Aim low and your feet will never leave the ground …..

Tastefully arrogant …

Its “funny” that sometimes one is too shy to be proud of what they have or what they have accomplished.

Too humble  ?
Well, sometimes,  humility is not a strength.

Stylish and “classy-arrogance” may be needed to get noticed.

Believe in your YELLOW umbrella and “shout” to everyone that it is indeed the greatest colour and only those with exquisite taste can appreciate it.

2  points ….
–  believe in YOURSELF & what you have
–  a slight tinge of arrogance may be needed to promote YOU.

Finally, if you do not have a yellow umbrella, perhaps you should make one.

Forgetting

FORGETTING.

A caption from the book
SELAMAT MENUNAIKAN IBADAH PUISI
by Joko Pinurbo

The easiest job to do is “forgetting”.
No need for intelligence. No need for education.  Just a little thought.

That is why many people do not like calendars, clocks and writing. It inhibits “forgetting”.

Seemingly, forgetting feels good. Liberating. Temporary.

The main enemy of “forgetting” is “WHEN”.
The best friend of “forgetting” is “WHENEVER”

It is often too that WHEN  and WHENEVER gets along well together.

(translated as understood by WL)

Listen with no prejudice

Many people feel that they are  listening well.

But their minds are already conjuring up answers even before they understand the real problem.

If you want to listen well, empty your thoughts first. Absorb and focus to what is being said. Have the sincerity to understand.

LISTEN WITHOUT ANY PREJUDICES.

Bear in mind you do not have an answer for everything.
And that’s entirely OK.
