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 ?

It starts today …..

For some it will still be a continuos journey towards a long term goal.

For others it will be a new phase, a new start to achieve  new targets  this year.

Learn from the past, be stronger than the past, be more determined than the past, be smarter than the past.

Wishing everyone an extremely successful year ahead.

You HOLD YOUR DESTINY IN YOUR OWN HANDS.

2021

New Year 2021 ……
.
.
When we can dance in a packed dance floor and have a drink in a crowded bar.

When a sneeze and cough are just a common cold and we just need Vit-C and not a vaccine.

When we can hug, cheek-kisses and touch without fear.

When we do not have to be apprehensive when meeting new people.

What else ? What else ?

Hopefully 2020 – has thought us to not take things for granted, be more compassionate and refocus on our priorities in life.

The kid inside you …

We must never loose that “little boy” inside of us. As we progress through life, we sometimes build a wall, a facade ; to protect ourselves, to represent our position, to demonstrate our capabilities or even to hide insecurities.

Perhaps in  search for happiness , fullfillment ?

But happiness was when we ran barefooted in the soccer field, climbed tress and skinny dipping in a river. I believe most of us missed those days ; and should incorporate moments of our past in to our present  lives.

We do not need to climb trees today but we can still have a bottle of wine and enjoy loud unrestricted laughter with our good old friends of yesteryears.

Who are You ?

A reflection, a self evaluation.
Are you a shark  ?

If you are , do you realize it ?
Or are you trying to climb trees ?

People can change.
Skills can be learnt.

But do also check out the “nature” of your SELF.

If you are a shark , then do not even try to climb a tree, for you will never beat a monkey.

And if you are a monkey, then do not even try swimming with the sharks in the ocean. You will be eaten alive.

And if you are indeed a shark, then behave like one too and not be a guppy.

WHO ARE YOU ?

***** **** and if you are a guppy, don’t pretend to be a shark too

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.

Sorry

A mistake made.
A wrong turn taken.

If only you are willing to say sorry, willing to own up, stop being defensive and take sincere actions to correct your fault, life will be less complicated and meaningful relationship will be forged.

Nobody is perfect … and the ability to admit your shortcomings shows dignity and humility.
