SPECIMEN COT: Previous backblast by Double Dip asked: Are you driven by comfort or your purpose? You can serve your comfort or your purpose. Whichever one you decide to serve comes at the cost of the other. What is your purpose?
HBR article “From purpose to impact” says fewer than 20% of leaders have a strong sense of their own individual purpose. Do you?
The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why. —Mark Twain
Made me think about my purpose and what shapes me. On December 5th 2007, at 23yo, I learned my grandmother, Janet Jorgensen, had been murdered in the Von Maur shooting in Omaha. Seven months later, my Grandma Husk died in hospice.
Quote from We Bought A Zoo movie: “Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage, just literally 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery, and I promise you something great will come of it.”
I don’t have it all figured out but here were two times I was courageous:
– As my grandma Husk was in and out of consciousness on herhospital bed and before she quickly deteriorated in hospice, I felt the urge to speak up. Instead of just looking at her like the rest of the family as she was dying, I started talking to her like she was my grandma and how I would want people to react to me being on my deathbed. Doing that flipped the script on a horrible situation as my family started to speak up and sent my grandma off with love!
– On my first date with Heidi (AT WHEATFIELDS) I asked, “Do you date to marry?”. She said yes and she later said “I do” and became my wife! Married 12 years in August.
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. —E.E. Cummings
To be a truly effective leader, you must clarify your purpose, and put it to work! BE COURAGEOUS AND GO GET ‘EM!
