1ST HALF: LESSONS FROM MENTORS
Awareness comes first.
Before you can become a leader – you have to learn how to follow.
My first mentor asked me the following question – What are angry about?
I will grow through mentoring others.
Our job is to help them unlock their goals – no give them goals.

HALFTIME – THE KEY POINTS TO HELP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY
BOOK: Colin Powell – It works for me in Life and Leadership
DAILY HABIT: Input and output – I ready every day and then I write it and post it to the social meeting. If I don’t give to others I am not using it.
QUOTE: Abraham Lincoln – The best way to predict your future is to create.
2nd HALF: OVERCOMING FAILURE
My journey into “Leadership” has been tough.
Building relationships have been my biggest failure.
I was managing the task and not building relationships.
Time management – I now schedule my time.
Multitasking is not multitasking – it not putting enough time into one activity.

MOST EXCITED ABOUT: I am working on a book. When I can put the knowledge between my ears on to paper I can start to leave a legacy.
