2020 and Covid-19 have challenged me like never before. Over the past nine months, I’ve wrestled with decisions that tested my discipline – my ability to act with intention rather than emotion. There are times I’ve felt defeated; there are times my feelings have gotten the best of me. We’ve all experienced a sense of loss; the coronavirus took things we may have taken for granted from us. And, it’s not over.
What’s sustained my leadership during this crisis has been my foundation and training. For years, I’ve been working with my friend and mentor, Tim Kight. Our leadership team, our district as a whole, has partnered with Focus 3 since the summer of 2014.
As Tim reminds me, “The core purpose of E+R=O training is to make your Response strong than any Event you face.”
Covid-19 is an Event, a global pandemic, that requires an elite Response.
Keeping Life in Focus is critical as we navigate this crisis together. I invite you to join me on a 21-day journey to keep our focus on intentional, Above the Line, Responses. Each morning for the next 21 days, I will post a short, 2-3 paragraph message reminding us of our training and tools to choose the best “R” available to us.
