3/16- Do you think that 20% of the people do 80% of the work? Well, the 20/80 principle tells us "yes!", it does. Are you part of that 20%? If you are, you are considered a leader! One who influences. One who serves others. One who empowers themselves and others. One who cares for others. One who masters relationships, equipping, attitude and leadership! Be a leader...you will be challenged...but you will feel the exhilaration of success! Its cool! Have a fantastic spring break! See you back on the 26th!

3/4- The "Lid" is the level of your effectiveness as a leader. In order to pop that lid off, we need to have Self Discipline. We need to lead ourself effectively first, then we can lead others. What are some of your "self disciplines"? How do you better yourself as a leader. We will be asking those questions this week in class. "Make this week a masterpiece!" Quote: "Self discipline is like a muscle, the more you exercise it, the better it gets." ~Daniel Goldstein

We will also be in the weight room to work our muscles, tendons and ligaments to prepare for our post assessment. Its gonna be awesome...with a capital "A"! Have a fantastic week!
