Whether serving in the Army or working as a businessman this saying always rang true:“When the going gets tough the tough get going.”So, what are you to do when you face tough times?

“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
Two Catalysts For A Leader’s Growth

Leadership fatigue. Almost every leader I know has at one time experienced a bland staleness. Yesterday’s cutting edge ideas don’t work as well anymore.  Over the course of time, a lapse in creative energy will gain negative momentum, making it all the more challenging to change the pace and come up with some fresh ideas.

My author and songwriting friends call this sensation, “writer’s block.

“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
The Sacrifice That Every Leader Must Make

If you are going to succeed as a leader, then you are going to have to make the daily commitment to opt out of the rat race by sacrificing the rat.
