Archives: Dreamliner's VB Week (Day 1/3)

  • When: 20171217
  • QIC: Dreamliner
  • The PAX: Cowboy, Free Fall, Scully, Sunshine, Dreamliner
  • Without realizing exactly what YHC was doing, I signed up for the three straight Mt. Trashmore Qs. Do not worry though, YHC will make sure not to waste the opportunity. In keeping with the original concept of SlothHill, YHC kept the pace “slow” for Day 1. Not sure if the PAX would agree. To be honest, YHC does not even agree. Here we go,

    THE INFLUENCE MYTH I once read that President Woodrow Wilson had a housekeeper who constantly lamented that she and her husband didn’t possess more prestigious positions in life. One day the lady approached the president after she heard that the secretary of labor had resigned.
    “President Wilson,” she said, “my husband is perfect for his vacant position. He is a laboring man, knows what labor is, and understands laboring people. Please consider him when you appoint the new secretary of labor.”
    “I appreciate your recommendation,” answered Wilson, “but you must remember, the secretary of labor is an important position. It requires an influential person.”
    “But,” the housekeeper said, “if you made my husband the secretary of labor, he would be an influential person!”
    People who have no leadership experience have a tendency to overestimate the importance of a leadership title. You may be able to grant someone a position, but you cannot grant him real leadership. Influence must be earned.
    A position gives you a chance. It gives you the opportunity to try out your leadership. It asks people to give you the benefit of the doubt for a while. But given some time, you will earn your level of influence—for better or worse. Good leaders will gain in influence beyond their stated position. Bad leaders will shrink their influence down so that it is actually less than what originally came with the position. Remember, a position doesn’t make a leader, but a leader can make the position.

    Colossians 4:6 (ESV) “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.”

    Naked-Man-Moleskin (NMM):
