If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you
My favorite quote is if it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you.
As leaders sometimes we think that we need to know it all, be it all and be able to do it all for our staff. This feeling of must-do often leads to imposter syndrome.
It’s critical that instead of worrying about what we can’t do, we focus on growth.
I’ve worked with so many leaders who once they realize that they don’t need to be perfect, they can focus on getting better. They really begin to grow exponentially.
I try to live this way too.
My husband’s been playing golf since he was in elementary school. Me… Not so much. I realized in three short years he’ll be retired and golf could be something that we do together.
Yesterday we took a golf lesson and I asked him to film me and take a picture of my stance so I can know what I was doing well and what I was not doing well.
I share this with you to show you that it’s important to operate outside your comfort zone. It’s not always easy, it’s not always pretty but when you get it done you’ll feel great!
Be gentle, I’m a beginner.
