I was filling my car up at the gas pump this morning and I had a thought. It was kind of like that moment when Doc in the 80’s hit “Back To The Future” fell and hit his head in the bathroom, and when he gained his senses, he had the idea for the flux capacitor. In that moment time travel was born. Amazing!

Okay…maybe it wasn’t that big of a discovery or thought, but I thought it would be helpful to all you leaders out there today.

Here is the question:

“What is the one thing you need to do today, that will help your organization move the ball down the field?”

After you pick your jaw off the floor I will explain. I know it is a simple question, but I have found it to be one of the best questions we can ask ourselves everyday of our life. This questions gives us 7 principles that are vital to organizational leadership.

1. Attainable

2. Focus

3. Active

4. Time-oriented

5. Servant-hearted

6. Purposeful

7. Futuristic

I know I sometimes start the day with an overwhelming sense of all the things I need to get done, or all the things I want to get done. How about you? I believe this question will help you today, unless you don’t put it into practice, which means you will never experience time travel. Enjoy!
