Risk....Care....Dream....Expect

Robert Lindley had a post on his blog that I thought was worth sharing. While there are conflicting sources for this quote - it seems most often to be credited to Claude Bissell.

RISK more than others think is safe

By getting out of your comfort zone a little bit, it helps you grow personally and professionally. Each time you do that, it does two things for your life. If you risk more than others think is safe, you experience growth. Remember that it is also a risk to ask for help when you need it – and critical to a successful future.

CARE more than others think is wise

More than anything else, it is the time spent with people that you care about that will matter to you when you are sitting in your retirement easy chair. It is not the day-to-day successes that matter in the end, but rather the quality of the relationships you share with family, friends, neighbors and co-workers that will define how happy you are with your life. As you take your life journey, take the time to nurture the relationships in your life.

DREAM more than others think is practical

Life will consistently offer you small opportunities to take if you want to. Each opportunity that you take builds on your previous experiences. Having big dreams helps you to see the opportunities that may fit with your goals.

EXPECT more than others think is possible

Dreams become expectations by writing them down as goals, both professional and personal. If you take a few minutes to write down some things that you expect to see in 5, 10 and 20 years and look at it once a month, you will be amazed at how fast you will get there.

Risk....Care....Dream....Expect - all part of the peer group experience. We risk as we trust others with our information. We care as we share our insight and guidance for them. We dream as we talk through where we intend to lead our company. And we expect each quarter for everyone to perform and achieve their goals and go to the next level.

HTG is about helping each leader learn to take the right risks, develop discerning care, chase big hairy audacious dreams, and hold people accountable as they meet expectations. We need to go further and do more to lead the pack!
