Time is tickin’ away.

It’s all about time. Almost everything in life is about time. We want more of it. We need more of it. The days are too short, the weeks are too short, the month, years and eventually our life-time is too short. We want more time with our family, more time at work, more time on vacation, more time, more time, more time.

Time is a big key to leadership. One of the keys to leading people is time. It’s a great thing and an evil thing. In order to lead people you need to have influence in their lives, and in order to have influence in their lives you need to spend time with them. It doesn’t just boil down to time, but time is the bottom factor. Without time with people, you will have no chance to influence them. Very few people are such good leaders that they’re able to lead people without spending time with them.

So, every chance we get, we need to be spending time with people in some way shape or form. It doesn’t have to be hours on end with each person you lead, but some time needs to be spent with them. If you want people to trust you as a leader, spend time with them.
