Impact makers must embrace the fact that from time-to-time a complete reboot is needed for the company handbook, marketing strategy, website, hiring practices, political campaign, or five year plan.
Frankly, my website needed a reboot. While Fidelitas has grown, this site and blog have simply grown stale. This reboot includes an enhanced spotlight on my activities outside of Fidelitas and will incorporate more of my natural perspective as an athlete into the realms of business and leadership. I’ll still produce content for Fidelitas Development, which can be found on our blog there, but am also committed to producing relevant content here in hopes of enabling leaders to make a greater impact, non-existent leaders to begin making an impact, and those that don’t consider themselves leaders to start looking at themselves in that sort of light.
As this initial post shows, you can also expect a level of transparency here. I don’t claim to know it all, nor will I pour out all that I know in this format. I’m here to increase my level of impact by influencing the decisions of others in a positive manner while bringing glory to the Kingdom of Christ. That last sentence is far more important than any number of subscribers, speaking dates, or consulting gigs.
Don’t be afraid of your own reboot when it’s needed. Identify what’s lagging, learn from what caused the lag in the first place, develop a plan to fix it, and then execute that plan. If others ask why you’re rebooting, be candid and truthful. In a world full of best-face-forward, a little truthfulness and candidness goes along way toward securing buy-in for your own reboot.
