These are ten things that either people love, hate, or at worst don’t care about.
Each has a tribe of people that are crazy about them too.
And that is ok. Better than ok it is great.
It is the same with connections. Not everyone will become close friends, allies, business partners or a customer.
And that is ok too.
We lead when we don’t worry about who as much as the act of connecting in the first place.
We lead when we risk reaching out a hand and greeting someone new, attend an event where no one is familiar, or we stand up and say “I will” when someone asks “who will?’
And back to the list. It doesn’t matter that some will reject you. In fact, you hope some will. If they don’t, you end up trying to please someone who will eventually realize their list of ten things is way more interesting than yours.
Over the next month or so some of my daily posts (including this one) will be assignments from a leadership class I am taking from Seth Godin.
