  20. 20. PAT R I C K L E N C I O N I Adding up all of the time that these meetings require amounts to approximately twenty percent of a leader's time. ! If you think about it, a leader who hates meetings is a lot like a symphony conductor who hates concerts. Meetings are what leaders do, and the solution to bad meetings is not the elimination of them, but rather the transformation of them.
  21. 21. I N T E R R U P T I O N S • Be interruptible (Jesus certainly was!) • Use 6:00am-7:00am • Use 3:30pm-5:30pm • Use an occasional Saturday

  23. 23. M I C H A E L H YAT T “Surround yourself with enough positive people so you can keep your energy level up. And, you want to have this same kind of effect on others. Sometimes, you just have to tell people the truth. Not only for your sake, but for theirs.
