Plug In

My business laptop is a relatively new model. It has all the latest busyness– you know; built-in web cam, slot DVD, Bluetooth, internal wireless, wireless detection, fingerprint reader … and tons of software that communicates with me when I don’t want to talk.

Here is my point; while batteries are being produced better than ever before, all this busyness drains them quickly – and with ease.

Does all this sound familiar? It should. It’s a metaphor for our life as leaders in the 21st Century. I don’t have to tell you what all the software and peripherals represent in your life … you feel it daily.

What are we to do?

Finding myself immediately frustrated with how quickly the battery in my new computer drained, I did some investigation into what I might do. The technical recommendation I found told me to recharge as often as possible at the 40% level. It may be my imagination, but I do believe the battery is more durable in those times (like now) when I’m operating on the battery during one of my long lunch/work sessions.

Again, this is not unlike us. Don’t let your battery get so low that you don’t have the strength to reach for the cord and plug it in. Know well the energy in your unique power adaptor. Reach for it often and plug in.

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
