34. Get a mentor

Having a mentor is important for many reasons. She has been where you are going; she has faced the same challenges, made the same choices. She will be your anchor in the storm. And she will do what followers don’t do: Challenging you and help you grow in the way you help your followers grow.

When was the last time someone challenged you with their questions?

Remember: Others have been in your shoes before.

There are a great many stories about those that have forgotten where they came from. How they become lonely and unsuccessful… For the leader it is important to remember that they started out like everyone else.

32. Be Honest

First, true leaders don’t lie (intentionally). The will admit when they have been wrong—no matter what.

Second, true leaders always keep their promises.
An honest man’s word is as good as his bond.
Miguel de Cervantes

Are you honest?

Do you admit your mistakes?

Remember: Honesty is the best policy.

31. Make Decisions!

Procrastinating is a good tactic, but one has to make a decision when one is due and not wait forever.

How long do you wait before making a decision?

Remember: Not making a decision is making the decision not to make a decision.
