When there are no new blogposts here… you should assume Laci is too busy. If you consider yourself as his friend, please warn him. If he is not writing, he is probably not reading either.
Reading and writing is a huge part of Spiritual Discipleship.
Just recently I got to read 2 books. 1 in Hungarian and 1 in English. I will spare you of the Hungarian one here.
The other book was Dave Kraft’s: Leaders who last.
I would like to post few thoughts that had tremendous impact on me lately.
“Remember that the power comes through you, not from you.“
“Are you a person of a strong inner character who can be trusted?“
“Service is the rent we pay for our space in life, motivated by the love of Jesus.“
“99% of leadership failures are failures of character”
“We need to be constantly learning, growing, stretching, getting out of our comfort zones, reading new things and trying new thing.“
“Writing keeps me spiritually alive and alert, so that I can faithfully respond to the LORD and his Word and stay relevant to my culture.“
“If no one is following, you are taking a walk by yourself.“
“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” Warren B. Bennis
BEWARE OF THESE 3 THINGS:
1. Lack of vision
2. A vision that is not clear
3. Commuunicating the visioninconsistently or ineffectively
“You can impress people from a distance, but you can impact them only up close.” Howard Hendricks
“To grow by addition, you recruit more followers. To grow by mulgtiplication you add more leaders.”
“It takes one to know one, to show one, and to grow one. Materials, books, seminars, and conferences won’t make leaders. Leaders make leaders.“
I hope you got few thoughts to ponder. I will try to make it back here in approximately a week…
Laci who enjoys more balance and harmony in his life…
p.s. Off to read John C. Maxwell: Developing the Leader within you.
