How you ever wondered how to excel at what you do? 

What does it take to lead the complexities of your success through the evolving seasons of your life and your career?

I recently read an article by someone named Dr. Richard Blackaby, who put this in the perspective of farming.

For those of us who live in North America, we' are generally familiar with the four primary seasons. Spring, summer, fall, and winter

If you ask a farmer, they would love to be in a harvest season continuously. Where crops are produced in abundance, but that's impossible.

Each season serves its purpose, and without one, the other would not be successful.

Patience, tending and weathering the storms eventually will bring growth, but then winter comes, and it's time for a period of rest and reflection.

Farmers know that to be successful, they must utilize all four seasons. 

As leaders, do we ever get stuck when we feel we're not in a season of harvest with our accomplishments when change is coming, or life becomes quiet?

How can we, as leaders, utilize the evolving seasons of our leadership to lead the complexities of our success and learn to excel at what we do? 

Get ready; it's time to hear some words of wisdom on self-leadership and the journey of many seasons from today's guest expert Dr. David Lee. 

Dr. David Lee is the Professor of Educational Leadership at The University of Southern Mississippi. His experience includes being a teacher, principal, superintendent of schools, and deputy state superintendent of education for the State of Louisiana. He speaks to school systems and businesses all over the world on leadership and motivation. Dr. Lee has over 35 years of experience driving change in organizations and providing the motivation that enables people to be better at what they do. He is the author of three books and his latest is, Run From The Nuts.
