Some people are born as leaders whereas others are born as followers. I believe it’s natural.
Currently, I’m leading two big projects simultaneously: throwing a big retirement party for my boss, estimating 100 attendees and collaborating with ten other writers to make a book in the Spring of 2019. At the same time, I’m holding a full-time job, babysitting my baby Jayden sometimes while his mom is in school, cooking, cleaning and trying to pass my real estate renewing license. Where do I get all the time? I make time by prioritizing and organizing my workload.
As a leader, you need to be a good listener. In the meeting this afternoon, I asked my other seven coworkers what they would like to volunteer to do for our boss retirement party after I mentioned the to-do list. We voted. We went by the Democratic rule. It was not easy to please everyone, so I learned to be gentle and explained what we could or could not do.
I don’t do well with a sedative lifestyle. I can easily get bored and depressed if I don’t keep myself busy. As long as I have a good night sleep and good health, I can climb mountains and cross oceans 😀
I’m happy and thankful for this life I have!
