I’m writing this blog on a new tool that I’m hoping to use to help bridge the gap between intention and execution. A few months ago, a coworker sent me a link to the Qwerkywriter, a Bluetooth keyboard with the look and feel of a vintage typewriter. It looked to be beautifully crafted, but a bit expensive at $300 for a keyboard with less functionality than one I could pick up for $19.99 on Amazon.com. I thought it would make a great gift for the accomplished writers I know, but not really a sensible purchase for someone who primarily writes blogs about his son’s high school football team.

Whether you’re comfortable with the expression of servant leadership or not, we’re all left with the same conclusion. If we really want to lead our businesses, organizations, communities, and families, we must be people-first. We must place a higher value on others. If we all make even the smallest effort to do that every day, the world will become a markedly better place. You can be that difference maker. You can be that change agent. You can be the leader worth following.
On the chain gang, I’ve seen and heard it all. I’ve seen teams that stay absolutely calm and consistent even when a game is slipping out of reach. Not surprisingly, those teams tend to go onto winning seasons, even if they lose that particular contest. I’ve also seen teams that absolutely fall apart. I’ve seen teams handle adversity with calmness, and I’ve seen teams turn on one another. I’ve seen coaches turn on one another. I’ve seen players disrespect their coaches, and I’ve seen players and coaches disrespect the officials.
Don’t let a single failure in execution derail you from a winning strategy. There’s too much at stake for your organization to collapse.
