Leadership with heart, mind, and soul

#026: Staying Sane

Added on by Sam Davidson.

Leadership is hard. It's stressful, taxing, exhausting, and trying. And if anyone is going to survive leading, they've got to figure out how to stay sane.

This happened yesterday. A friend wrote and said I was impressive for maintaining a consistent writing schedule. I thanked him, but then said it was how I stayed sane. Writing often helps me release energy and stay focused on the tasks of leading.

Leaders can take a break, earn a rest, and relax, of course. But, the art of action can also help you release energy, regain focus, and actually create energy that you need to lead. 

Stay sane. No one follows crazy.
