You’ve always wanted to be in leadership, but it's never been a priority. There is always something more important, or you convince yourself, “I will pursue it later.”
Roman Stoic philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca notes:
You are living as if destined to live forever; your own frailty never occurs to you; you don’t notice how much time has already passed, but squander it as though you had a full and overflowing supply.
If you want to be in leadership, then decided to be a leader. Shift your mindset and obsess:
- Read 500 pages every day on leadership every day.
- Model a leader that you find inspiring.
- Everyday do the little things that will make you a better leader.
Believe me, it is the sign of a great man, and one who is above human error, not to allow his time to be frittered away: he has the longest possible life simply because whatever time was available he devoted entirely to himself.
Your time is limited use it wisely.
