Be a leader for the Environment and the Energy Business by doing what you love, and loving what you do

The principle of Loving your chosen task and being passionate about your field abounds in leadership teaching. To be a truly successful leader, you need to discover your passion and operate only from that grid. Spend your days doing what you’re most interested in. Discover your passion and thrive doing what you do best.
The principle is true if passion is defined as an overall sense of purpose.
But the principle becomes problematic if passion is defined as only aiming for life’s sweet spot.
I don’t know about you, but there have been plenty of times I’ve been called to lead where I’m not doing what I love, and I’m not loving what I’m doing. I’ve been exhausted, frustrated, burned out, angry, or discouraged. I’ve needed to lead from duty, responsibility, willpower, or necessity.
Enter a simple principle, one that’s so powerful it trumps the narrower definition of passion. When you lead from this principle, you’re not worried about having bad days, getting your needs met, or always loving what you’re doing.
The principle is willingness to LIVE with PASSION.
If we define passion as always loving what we’re doing, then we need to broaden our definition of passion, because success in leadership is certainly not about feeling good all the time.
Paul of Tarsus, put it this way: “Be leaders, not because you must, but because you’re willing.”

Yours,
Dr Kroko

PS:
That’s what’s needed.
Willingness.
When the battle is raging and when the war isn’t getting over easy — willingness gets things done.
BUT WHAT LEADERSHIP MEANS TO YOU IN THE CONTEXT OF THIS AWESOME LEADER PAUL OF TARSUS?
Paul, better known today as St Paul rocked the World.
He was a public Master incarnate…

SO LET ME KNOW WHERE YOU WANT TO LEAD AND WE’LL SORT IT.
