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


Good “Monday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the start of a new week from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 18 July 2022!


Today’s Message is: “Life is a Balance Day!” Why Not?


“Why is balanced leadership so important? The most successful leaders strive to find the balance between work and all other aspects of their lives. When they are able to find that balance they make a big difference in the way they lead an organization and the people. Balanced leadership is also about the importance of character. Character builds trust and without a good balance of integrity, responsibility, and compassion, people will not follow you. Balanced Leadership and character is about self-discipline, moral courage, core values, and trusting yourself. Is your leadership balanced?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. It took me many years to learn how to balance my life. Along the way I had the opportunity to blend two families together. With 5 teenagers in the house,it became important to work more overtime and to work any part time work I could find. That took a fair bit of balance on my part, to make sure that I still had time to balance work with family time. It was a tough learning experience. I found mutiple links to choose from today but decided on the below link. I hope that y’all find balance in it. Have a blessed day today and always.

Taken…

I always found it interesting that you can find more out about a leader when they are at play than at work. If you can't have a balanced approach at relaxation the odds are that the leader isn't going to be able to balance all the things that work presents.

Balance is the key in leadership during duty hours and after my friend. You hit the nail on the head Jack. Have a great evening.

Good post Col. It reminds me of a quote by President Ronald Reagan, "Trust, but verify!" Good words to live by, Sir.
