I once heard a story about a young boy who was playing checkers with his grandfather.
After losing every game, the boy said to his grandfather, “You win every game and I never win.”
In response, the grandfather replied, “Well, you wouldn’t want me to let you win, would you? If I did that, you won’t learn anything.”
To which the young boy said, “I don’t want to learn anything. I just want to win.”
There is a reason trees bring forth their fruit in season and not before. They must complete the growth process.
Too often, leaders are faced with those who wish to be promoted to leadership positions without completing the growth process offering unripen fruit.
Sol says… “Don’t demand an audience with the king or push for a place among the great.” ~ Proverbs 25:6
As leaders, your job is to nurture the good fruit of your organization and prune the unproductive.
Make it a great day and keep being awesome.
