Who Am I Doing This For?

I was talking with a friend and there are many, many things we do for others. Yet it leads to so much frustration with late nights figuring things out, solving problems, working through issues, and being there for others.

As leaders we think we need to do all this for others. If we don’t, then it won’t get done. We become annoyed, ticked, and feeling the world is against us.

Until we realize that we’re not actually doing it for “them”. We’re doing it for us. Whether it’s home, volunteer, work, or community, we do so much for our own ego. For our own pride. Let’s drop our ego like it’s 1999 and move on. We don’t need an intact ego. We must be leaders that truly put others first, not our own selfish ambitions.

We need intact relationships that really matter.

I love helping companies scale and grow their organizations to delight customers and employees, enabling healthy teams, fast growth, and fewer headaches. Scaling quickly is wrought with potholes and plot twists. When you’re running a company, losing customers, and employees are on their way out, and don’t have your systems running smoothly, then you’ll be at your wits' end. I've been there and hate it.
