TRIPLE III TIME: “Subtle Leadership”

IMG_4263This year my Dad would have been 91.  And I will openly admit that there are many times each week that I think about what he might say or believe about “the state of everything”.  I contend that his comments would be brief and to the point…but in the most unique way…each statement would qualify as: “Subtle Leadership”.

So in my fun TRIPLE III TIME way…here are my DAD’s TOP 10 “Subtle Leadership” 2021 reflections:

  1. Mask or no mask…there’s work to do so get out there and do it.
  2. Only take stuff with you that you know you will need…the rest will get too heavy to carry.
  3. Make a note about what you need to get done…otherwise you will forget.
  4. If you say you already know everything…why am I telling you something you need to know.
  5. People get scared sometimes…and that’s ok.
  6. Do you listen or sing a few of the songs we used to play…and then smile.
  7. If people tell you they have not tried farming a certain way before…try it and be the first.
  8. Make time for feeding young and older calves and cows…you need them all.
  9. It’s OK to go out and work a field later at night…it gives you special time to think.
  10. Remembering only negative stuff can take up a lot of space in your brain.

Yes I can almost hear him say each of these TOP 10 “Subtle Leadership” points.  Read them a couple times and think about how they may help you too.
