166. Leading During Chaos

Difficult times require simple leadership.  Simple, not complex, not transformational, and not over reactive.  Simple!

All difficult times are the same.  They all seem complex, and life threatening with so many unknowns.  Difficult times without leadership on a personal level create chaos on all levels.


Chaos causes fear.  And fear is the absence of simple actions.  Without simple actions nothing can be accomplished.  Fear is the most devastating reaction to chaos.


It is time for personal leadership not national leadership.  You must lead yourself first by finding three simple things that produce immediate results to overcome this current chaos.  You must break through fear and the complexity of chaos and root your actions in three simple things. 


Take a step back.  Make a list of everything that you have been told will be an existential threat to mankind, your company, and your family.  Hurricanes, military combat, guns, racism, confederate flags, drugs, depression, viruses.  On that list try to write down the millions of dollars spend convincing you, you were going to die within the year.


Make another list on a work-out you can do outside, a sexy thing you can do with your wife or husband or lover, a way you can bring value to one person.  Make a list of three simple things you can do today to improve your conditions.  No matter where you are, who you are.

Now you have two choices one is not real and makes no difference and will never happen to the level they proport.  The other list will change world and stabilize all chaos.


The major problem is you have been convinced chaos is real and every crisis is an existential event.  And you have convinced yourself to not take simple actions. 


You must lead now.  You must break through the complexity and engage in spite of the chaos by actually doing simple things.
