During my hiatus from blogging while my broken leg healed, I realized the value of quiet time.  I was forced to slow down and had lots of time to think.  I relearned the value of creating open space in my days but also realized how elusive open space often seems to be in the break-neck pace of life and work.  The value of it is unquestioned.  It affords us time to think, create, problem solve and dream.

I realized that to seize this type of time in our days really requires commitment and a devotion to making it happen and thus emerged a new vision my blog.  My previous blogging took the shape of a standard sized blog.about 500 words.  In the scheme of things, this is still pretty short, but what if I could write something that could be quickly read in less than 1 minute and then challenge the reader to take an additional 2 to 8 minutes to chew on the topic and decide to take at least one action.  And so “The Servant Leader’s Devotional” was born.

On a weekly basis, I’ll share 250 words or less on a leadership topic of substance inspired by some of the best leadership books of our time, followed by a question to move you into action.  10 minutes max of open space is all you need to devote once a week to move you forward to serve those you lead in a more powerful way.

Where on your calendar are you willing to devote a least 10 minutes a week to your leadership development?
