We live in a strange world today which is so fast-paced and distracting. We all have been bombarded with technology, smart devices and more. Talking a step back to do self-reflection is tough nowadays but almost more critical than ever.
Today, people are so worked up; someone’s uneven behavior can have impacts on the ones surrounding him or her and it makes a big difference. Try to have the greatest impact on others, and then the world can be a better place to live in.
It is a very powerful point i.e. to face the people who influenced us the most whether it’s our parents or any of those other people. Yes, it’s important what they say but it is also important what they do.
Eddie Turner on his book ‘140 Simple Messages to Guide Emerging Leaders’:
Leadership is one of the world’s oldest professions. There are countless resources for one to learn about leadership and do an in-depth study. In this book, my goal is not to provide a scholarly tome, but rather to provide emerging leaders simple messages for guidance and success. I do this through 140 simple messages that have helped me navigate life.
