I have to submit weekly Sales Leads to my boss on Fridays. Basically so she can see what I'm working on, make sure I'm being productive with my time, pulling my weight, and quite frankly, covering her @ss when the GM has questions. This had me thinking today...
I consider myself a good person... I go to church regularly, I tell someone if they dropped cash in front of me, I occasionally let people in when traffic's bad, I smile at strangers, I Don't Mess With Texas... but I'm the first to admit I have PLENTY of room to improve on my character. I can identify at least 4 qualities right this instant that I wish I didn't possess, so strongly anyway. Everything in moderation! So instead of knowing about them and merrily moving on with daily life, it's time to work on em.
Now I'm the girl that has to laminate a marathon training schedule and record my progress with a permanent marker to make it official. This is no different, I need to submit my Character Leads to make it official. And if ever there was a boss of Character, it'd be Jesus. Thus, it's only natural that I submit my Leads to Him. Basically so He can see what I'm working on, make sure I'm being productive with my time, pulling my weight, and quite frankly, covering His @ss when God has questions.
See the connection here?
I like to think and write and pray, so this works out great... except I'm on the fence whether to make these Leads public. On one hand, it might be beneficial for others to read and possibly identify their own shortcomings through my shameless transparency (or just laugh at my downfalls), and on the other hand, my mom's voice is playing like a skipping record in my head "you don't have to tell everything you know - you don't have to tell everything you know - you don't have to tell everything you know". Writing my Character Leads on the World Wide Web could get embarrassing.
I'll have to think about this further. Goodbye.
