It’s no secret that I’m not the most technologically advanced person. iphones, ipods, macbook air, gps systems…sometimes it’s way too advanced for me. So starting a blog like this is one of those things that I’m excited about, yet also a little unsure. Maybe unsure isn’t the right word. Maybe it’s doubtful, a little anxious, apprehensive. But I think you know what I mean.
So as you check in from time to time, understand something … you may get some pictures with a thumb in the way. You may get a notice that I posted something, but when you open it, there’s nothing there because I hit delete rather than enter. Again…I’m not claiming to be Mark Zuckerberg!
So I’m giving you a pre-apology, a "technical" apology. But I also want you to understand something else.
If you’re leading out in any area–the boardroom, the classroom, the home, the ballfield–there will be times when you’ll be unsure. It’s just part of the leadership game. But like anything, what matters most is the fact that you’re willing to step out, that you’re willing to make the calls and take risks that may be a little scary. Because for any leader to make an impact, they have to be willing to get past the doubt and instead trust that God is going to lead the way!
