Here are a few of our favorite Big Ideas from Week 3- Implementing Your Vision and Becoming A Global Citizen
Big Idea #1: A to B > A to Z
When we aspire to be 21st century leaders there may be a desire to be an ultimate leader on Day 1. We may hope to be unable of makingmistakes, wise, and prodigious, and a pretty much perfect person. This is both an outdated and unwise notion of leadership.
Jason Barger calls this desire to achieve leadership goals easy and fast going from: A to Z. Barger suggests going from: A to B.
A to B is the process of taking baby steps, consistently, every day.
A to Z is about overnight success and acclaim. It isn't realistic.
When we take an "A to B" mentality we're better able to make progress on long term goals and visions and find it easier to deal with setbacks because we know that the milestone is only one step away!
What is the next action you need to take to step into your role as a 21st Century Leader?
Big Idea #2:Daredevil
A daredevil in 21st century leadership is a person who risks their lives for a cause, purpose, or vision.
THINK: Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Gandhi, or even modern innovators like Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, or someone you may know who risks criticism to innovate and speak up for what is right!
Daredevil doesn't necessarily mean risking your life or being reckless. It means being a daredevil in your mindset. Being willing to reject the stability, conformity, and passiveness that is rampant in our society.
We need leaders and teams that are willing to move things forward by stepping outside of the norm!
"All glory comes from daring to begin" -Eugene Ware
Big Idea #3:
Jason says that fear is what makes us unable to take action and be the Daredevil that we were born to become. He shares 4 common fears 21st Century Leaders may experience and the questions that leaders may repeat when stuck.
Fear of Failure: What if I don't succeed?
Fear of Economic: What if I don't make money?
Fear of Self Leadership: What if I can't lead myself?
Fear of Staying Afloat: What if I can't last and live my dream for a longer period?
These questions can be paralyzing and stop an amazing leader from taking action!
Jason suggests that you "find your true north star"! True north is the purpose of your life. What were you put on earth to do?! What sets you on fire?
Maybe you have a passion for writing, a social cause, or a really neat business idea. Use your vision as fuel to get you past these limiting fears and questions!
Solution to Fear Questions: What is your purpose?
