Keep the End in Mind

Inspiration or Motivation


Stephen Covey has a great message: “Keep the end in mind. Where is your journey in life going? Do you have a plan, or are you living according to someone else’s plan. If it’s the latter, do you think they have your best interest in mind?”

Jim Rohn once said to his mentor, ‘If I had more money, I would have a better plan.’ He said,

‘If you had a better plan, you would have more money.’ You see, it’s not the money or time that counts, it’s all about the plan.

The 2021 Live2Lead simulcast included John Maxwell, Jeff Henderson, Jamie Kern Lima, Valorie Burton and Ed Mylett. I felt it was one of the best experiences ever because I connected with each of the speakers.


Valuable lessons - I’ll share a few.


I imagine that many of us have had the assignment to write our epitaph - the inscription that may someday be written on our tombstone. Creating your Legacy (Law #21) is one of the laws of leadership that John covered from his recent rewrite of one of his most popular books, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. Legacy is the message that survives long after you. This message, an epitaph, is the picture that I get whenever I am in a discussion about legacy. Everyday is a good day to consider the message that we are leaving behind. The other law he talked about is the law of the Inner Circle (Law #11). Simply stated, when you develop your inner circle (your support team) you move further and faster than if you go the way by yourself. Consider the circular connection that your inner circle and creating your legacy have for each other. Each one builds on the other. Talk about synergy!

John started with a couple of laws of leadership from his recent rewrite of one of his most popular books, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. He talked about the laws of the Inner Circle (Law #11) and Legacy (Law #21). Simply stated, when you develop your inner circle (your support team) you move further and faster than if you go the way by yourself…..this also aids in creating your legacy - that message that survives long after you.

Ed Mylett is a monster of a guy! He reminds me of one of my favorite actors, Dwayne “The Rock'' Johnson. Ed comes across as this big, macho guy. He also recognizes that people want to feel loved, cared for, and believed in. He helped me to recognize that we are always making people feel something. We can either help them feel good about themselves, bad about themselves, or when we do not say anything we send a subtle message that they are not important enough to even make a comment. He asks, “What or how do you think you make people feel?” and “Are you intentional?” I don’t know about you, but I can certainly be more intentional! He went on to share a most amazing story about his son finding his mojo, his inspiration to become all he was meant to become. I’d love to share it with you, but it will be so much more meaningful when you hear it straight from Ed Mylett!

If you want to grow to the next level, and especially if you want to help take your team or even your family to the next level - consider how you might best do that. We offer replays of 1 or all 5 of the speakers and we can adapt to your interests and even your budget.


Take yourself and your team to the next level.


Where are you in this process? Is your team’s growth process once a year? Or are you continually in the development mode? Are you building and growing your inner circle? How strong is your legacy at this time? Leadership Harbor is poised to add value to you and grow your awareness in these areas. Let’s chat.
