Today's Message is: "Chill Day!" Why Not?

The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!


Good “Wednesday & Hump Day!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 2 March 2022!

Today’s Message is: “Chill Day!” Why Not?


“Leaders are under a lot of stress day in and day out, so they need to learn to take the ‘Chill Pill’ and wind down at the end of each day. Leaders can’t do it all anyway. Your team is watching you and how you handle yourself under pressure. It’s not healthy for a leader to keep going 24/7 without a break. You need to be at your best and remember it's not all about you. It’s about the people you lead and the organization you're in charge of. Just take some time to chill!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
