Don't Be Common
It is common for meetings to start late, and for people to be rushing to make that meeting. It’s common to see people eating biscuits at morning tea or people at a conference overeating for lunch. It’s common for us to get too little sleep, carry too much weight, miss our daily exercise or find excuses not to do them. It is common for people never to miss a meeting but miss a family occasion. It’s common for us to take calls when with family or friends. It is common for us to fill our day with work and have no time to think or read. To have uncompleted books by the bedside that have been there for months. It’s common to focus on tactics and not strategy. It’s common to get caught up in the day-to-day and have no clue what our dreams are for the future. Don’t be common. Be uncommon. It’s the uncommon person who swims in the opposite direction and achieves the most in all aspects of their life. Be the rare leader who defies all the "commons" in this story. Mark Twain once said, “whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority - it’s time to pause and reflect." Buck the system, don’t be common. Instead, be different to the majority. Take time to sit, pause and reflect on how you will be the one who will step away from the herd to achieve more, be more, give more, and love more. © GB
