Good morning and Happy Monday!
I’m Monica Wofford and this is your Monday Moment.
We did it! We survived another year and made it to a new one! And in this, the first month and weeks of a new year, we’re faced with all kinds of potential for new beginnings. How do you lead such a fantastic opportunity?

Hmmm… leading this opportunity is not unlike weight loss or workout resolutions. Be mindful you don’t try to change the whole world in the first five minutes. Baby steps and ANY effort is STILL progress in the right direction. (which happens to be true for ALL new endeavors, skills, and attempts of you and those you have the privilege of leading)
Stay focused on the opportunity that has the most potential for expansive positive outcomes and ask yourself:
- What will impact the most people, in good ways, of course?
- What will bring in the most revenue or reap the most savings?
- What will reduce your overwhelm or those on the team you have the privilege of leading, by the largest margin?
Make those answers your priority and give those your focus.
We’ve all launched into the new year with the enthusiasm of a baby bunny. Maybe this time, we have the same energy, but pace ourselves. (and do a bit of planning.) That is how leaders often make long lasting improvements out of a fresh, new start or new opportunity.
I’m Monica Wofford and that’s your Monday Moment.
See you next week for more talk on Leadership.
