The Game Changed, Don't Waste Your Life & Put Your Phone Down #ThoughtsFromTerry
Friday thoughts, here we go.
The Game Changed
Coaching an NBA basketball team with an MLB playbook would be a disaster. In the same way, leading a team by the wrong playbook will also result in poor outcomes.
People evolve and grow; teams morph, goals and objectives adjust, technology rapidly changes. Leading is dynamic.
As leaders, we must regularly evaluate and change our playbook to the proper game. If you find yourself continually leading the same way, I will go on a limb and tell you that your game has changed without you.
Are you being led by the wrong playbook? With honor and respect, it's time to have a Crucial Conversation. Lead up, pull the necessary feedback, and align the playbook with the new reality.
Leading with the right playbook makes all the difference! Your capacity as a leader is directly tied to your ability to change or adapt in the moment and over time.

Book excerpt I am processing
God created me and you to live with a single, all-embracing, all-transforming passion-namely, a passion to glorify God by enjoying and displaying His supreme excellence in all the spheres of life. Enjoying and displaying are both crucial. John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life (p. 31)

I have A LOT of contacts - personal are in Gmail while work are in Office 365. Contact management has always been a challenge for me, especially since I bounce from iPhone to Android on a regular basis. Full Contact makes managing contacts a breeze. Full Contact syncs contacts from iCloud, Google, Exchange and Office 365. It’s also available on iOS, Android, Mac, and Web. It’s a winner!
Blinkist (from Amy Simon)
I love the app Blinkist. They take insightful books and they pull bite-sized insights in 15-minute audio or text. Books like The Power of Habit, Essentialism, Getting Things Done, The Like Switch, and the list goes on!
I heard about the app from a Podcast recommended to me called, Coaching for Leaders - Talent Management | Leadership Strategy (iTunes) (Sticher)
