Sailing & Leadership

I learned to sail when I was in my teenage years. Like many things we learn, it starts with the basic concepts, and as we practice those over time we find that they apply to other situations, and we learn the lesson in a deeper, more practical way.


John Maxwell teaches “Learn to lead yourself before you lead others.” This means that in order to teach someone else to sail, I have to learn it well enough to talk about it. I have to lead myself. Sailing is not about theory, though it can be applied knowledge. And when the wind is filling the sails it truly fills my soul.


Here is a brief video to combine the ideas of sailing and leadership. I hope you enjoy it!
