Growing is the key, day by day

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

“Leaders develop daily,” says leadership guru John Maxwell, “not in a day.”

And that sums up Maxwell’s approach to leadership: committing to personal growth over time. Here are some of Maxwell’s ideas for improving yourself:
  • The road to success runs uphill. Spend one hour a day for five years on a given subject and you will become expert at it … but not without working at it.

  • Growth separates those who lead from those who follow. Many of Maxwell’s college classmates surpassed him academically, he says. What made him more successful than most of them over the long haul was his willingness to change.

  • Experience is the best teacher only if you’re the best student. Ask questions, listen and learn from leaders to accelerate the lessons you’ll learn from life.

  • Growth begets growth. More than 30 years after choosing personal growth as his focal point, Maxwell finds that the more he learns and grows, the more important learning and growing become to him.

  • The secret of success is to discover your strengths and organize your life around applying them. Forget about trying to strengthen your weaknesses. Instead, Maxwell opts for building on three or four strengths and avoiding his weaknesses.
