Help Others Succeed
Vince Lombardi said, “It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever – the one who recognizes the challenges and does something about it.” Are we cheering on those around us? It’s not just enough to cheer at the finish line… are we there at the first and second turn as well? Encourage those around you to set SMART goals and cheer them along the way.
Know Your Personal Board of Directors
STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING and take this quiz! Now, use those names to fill your Board of Directors. Being a leader is knowing who leaders are in your own life and who is there to support you and help you make decisions. Having a mentor is important for personal growth. Spend time finding your own Board of Directors.
Leave a Legacy
Have you ever heard the saying, “Leave your campsite cleaner than you found it?” How are you leaving your school when you graduate? Are your successors prepared to take over? Make sure you have a plan to turn over the reigns. And don’t forget to say THANK YOU! There are so many people in your school that deserves your thanks. Don’t forget to finish your year with handwritten notes of gratitude.
