Laws of Life: Leadership

Laws of Life



The What

Leadership, leadership, leadership… It’s something we’re all aware of, we know what a leader is, but what makes a good leader, from an okay leader, from a bad leader, to a corrupt leader? Well, there is many factors that lead to a persons ability to lead others in a “correct” fashion. For some, it comes naturally, for others, not so much. So what if you weren’t born a leader? Does this mean you can’t lead? Of course not! Like anything in life, we have the power to learn and overcome obstacles. I learned this first hand years ago.

Personal Experience

Years ago I was on a 21 day wilderness trip in the Bob Marshal Wilderness in northwest Montana. Up until this point I’ve always thought myself a a natural born leader, I was right and wrong. Just because you may have that natural born talent doesn’t mean you’re going to excel with ease. Within the first 2 days of our trip, I was given the position for a day to lead our group which consisted of 5 other individuals, then everything when bang! The bang was “responsibility” which landed harshly on my shoulders. I was not only in charge of getting us to point A to B safely but also I had to be aware of the other individuals. I began leading but being self conscious, I sounded and probably looked like a very insecure leader… something a leader shouldn’t be.

As the day continued and as we kept backpacking through the beautiful Montana lands, my confidence grew. Before we retired at the end of the day, I was to be judged on how well I led the group that day. The same thing kept getting brought up. While I did my best to my ability, I was lacking in confidence in my decisions.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

As a leader, decisions are everything. People look at you to make the right choice to bring the group (or any collected amount of people trying to achieve the same thing.) It goes like this. You could make nothing but right choices then make one wrong move and suddenly everyone hates you. It happens so don’t let it get you down. We all make mistakes, everyday actually. It’s easier to jump on the wagon and call someone else out rather than our own selves. I know this is true for myself.

You are the Leader of your own Life

Lets look at it this way. You own your life. People may “tell” you what to do but in the end its your choice, whether right or wrong. Learning from past mistakes is one of life’s natural ways of teaching. Don’t be afraid to make decisions for yourself, but don’t do exactly what others say when you feel indifferent about whatever it may be. Trust your instincts, they can save your life.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
