Radiated Glory

Sideline Parents

A boss who micromanages is like a coach who wants to get in the game. Leaders guide and support…then sit back and cheer from the sidelines.                                                 ~Simon Sinek

If you really want to experience the thrill of competition join the team on the field.  Pin on a number and get in the race.  Place your name on the start list.  Dive into a competition so deeply that only a small tunnel of light leading to the finish line is visible.  Arrive at your destination exhausted and exalted.

Being on the sidelines is wonderful entertainment but the glory of a victory is radiated from those who took part in the competition.  It is not yours to wrap yourself in but rather shared by the kindness and generosity of those who accomplished great deeds.  Knowing the difference is important otherwise we may believe we are critical to team’s success just because we fly their flag from our car window.
