Critical to being a great leader is to be crystal clear and use simple, key, repeatable messages.

The world is crazy and we are busy enough with everything we are supposed to pay attention to.

Therefore, make the most important things habit.

Engrained.

Automatic.

Habit.

Non-negotiable.

Something worth defending.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

I asked if she suspected her young Son would eventually ask

Asked a smart executive yesterday if anyone has asked her to explain the meaning of life.

She said no.

Then I asked if she suspected her young Son would eventually ask.

She said yes.

So I asked, “What will you say?”

After listening to her for a minute, maybe two, she finally finished sharing her answer.

(this is surprising longer than it seems)

Pretenting to be a young child (or teenager) I replied, “Huh?”

Then I shared my answer, “To love and be loved.”

Point is this: there are things we know to be crucial, most of which we ignore.

That’s what I write about.

It’s not always pretty, or easy to read.

But it’s never a lie.
