OU KNOW HOW GOOD you are, but do you know how good you could be? This is a case where it’s easy to think that good is good enough and get comfortable.
In Peter Temes' remarkable new book, The Power of Purpose , he gets to a fundamental point of servant leadership right from the get-go. He writes: [I]magine the man or woman who looks at the world and understands, this is when I should push, here is the opportunity to reshape the world in some small way , and knows too when to say, here is when I must step back, here is when my desire has to yield to patience . The real power lies in being able to see both visions.
He’s writing about the balance between ambition on one hand and humility and patience on the other. Being able to read a situation is fundamental to this balance and it comes from having both self-knowledge and a quality best described as mindfulness . This is the essence of servant leadership; an outward focus. More on this book later.
(By the way, a often quoted book on mindfulness is that by Harvard professor Ellen J. Langer .)
