Continued from yesterday’s riff

Training. Teaching. Business. Uncharted territory is common. Risk taking is common. Growth is common.

Here’s an example of what i was describing yesterday about approval addiction.

Our son joins the cross country team in 10th grade and it was never about how well he ran.

It was about being part of a supportive team, developing relationships, setting goals, overcoming obstacles, persistence, recognizing progress, celebrating small victories unrelated to run times, and enjoying being a part of a loving community.

We gave consistent and positive feedback on traits like perseverance, courage, creativity, honesty, and perspective.

These are, after all, assets that last a lifetime, long after anyone remembers how fast you ran a 5k.

Dear Son

Here’s why i don’t want to tell you

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
If you know the AquaDuck, then you know where this was taken.

If i tell you you’ll never remember.

If i help you figure it out for yourself, you’ll never forget.

Best place to earn credibility?

jeff noel author
Sent three of these out yesterday. Reminded why i wrote the book. A life guide in case our Son grew up without me.

Be careful with learning and teaching.

Both are important.

Teachers are not automatically modeling their messages.

Learners are not automatically applying lessons and transforming.

Take a personal inventory.

Brutally honest?

Credibility is in the living, not the teaching.

Credibility is in the living, not the learning.

Living, it turns out, is the best way to learn and to teach.

Be replaceable

Disney Keynote Speakers
The job of a great leader is to make more leaders. Better leaders.

Be replaceable?

What does that mean?

Will a younger person be able to build on what you’ve accomplished and make their life better than yours by any metric you pick?

Will a younger person be able to build on what you’ve accomplished and make our world a little better than you made it by any metric you pick?

To teach is to learn twice

Glacier Red Bus Tours
The Red Bus Tours are a signature way to see Glacier National Park for the first time.

 

i’ve been writing these blogs for nearly a decade, and one of the best things that’s ever happened (besides getting to read them) is the opportunity i have to dwell in truth all day, every day.

To reflect, to act, and to hope.

This is power food for personal and organizational leadership.
