As a leader in my 20s, I remember having a lot of passion in whatever project or endeavor I set my mind to. Passion can be contagious and I think seeing a mentor leading with passion rubbed off on an eager young adult like me. In fact, people were able to overlook some of my inadequacies as a leader because of my authentic passion in my work and for helping people.
I recently read this book called “The One Thing” that helped me to focus on what that “one thing” is. Reality is, we have a ton of things that we are juggling in our lives. But what I realize is that if we don’t have that one thing as our main thing, then so many other peripheral things become our priority.
