For the first time in several years, I didn’t attend the Global Leadership Summit last week. I’ve gone many times in the past (See my favorite quotes from last year!) and it’s always been so encouraging. The conference emphasizes that EVERYONE is a leader and EVERYONE has influence – you don’t have to be the CEO of a Fortune 500 company to be a leader. We all have people watching what we do and say, no matter who we are or how unimpressive our lives may seem!
Although I wasn’t at this year’s conference, I did get the chance to catch Craig Groeschel’s opening talk online. He is always such an inspiring and animated speaker, and I jotted down several notes as he taught on “bending the curve” and how to pursue excellence instead of perfection with the acronym “GETMO” – Good Enough to Move On.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Groeschel’s opening session:
Leadership is influence, and everyone has influence.
More does not always mean better.
Perfection is often the enemy of progress.
Yes, God often guides by what he provides. I would also suggest to you that God also guides by what he withholds. God often may withhold something that you think that you want to help you see something that you would not see otherwise.
If you’re older, and you’re not dead, you’re not done!
If you commit to the WHAT, and are consumed by your WHY, you will figure out the HOW!
There’s always a way.
Don’t obsess about things that don’t matter. GETMO! Good enough to move on!
You have everything you need to do everything you’re called to do.
As somewhat of a perfectionist myself, I could definitely relate to a lot of this content. 😊 And, as usual, Groeschel seemed to have just the words to inspire those listening.
If you were at #GLS19, what were your favorite quotes? I’d love to hear what I missed out on!
If you weren’t at #GLS19, here are some of Craig Groeschel’s books I recommend. He writes in a very relatable, easy-to-understand way, plenty of self-deprecating humor included. 😊
Hope In the Dark is also on my to-read list, but I haven’t gone through this one yet!
Have a great week and be encouraged, because “you have everything you need to do everything you’re called to do”!
