I was listening to pastor Rick Warren talk about growing spiritually. He said those of us who are growing are doing these three things: “Get it. Got it. Give it!”
There’s a speech I give every year to a class of graduate students at Southern Methodist University. I give out a list of leadership principles that I’ve incorporated in my work history and have used in my career.
While the principles have remained constant, the stories and illustrations are more refined as I improve their implementation with new knowledge and experience. And, I get better as I endeavor to teach it.
So, keep all three plates spinning. Keep getting. Work on converting your learning to practice that shows you got it. Give it away by finding someone to teach.
