Feeding group and leadership

Feeding group was really interesting! I’ll try to post on that tonight. For now I’m headed out to volunteer and run some errands before I meet my friend and start the second part of the day. If I stay home I’ll be tempted to nap since I didn’t manage to fall asleep until like 3am! Ack ick! And I saw one of my professors today! The clock ticks down, only 6 more days before school starts!!

For now I’ll leave you with a concept I’ve thought about a lot over the past semester. It was in a book about leadership, in one of our OT books. The gist of it was “Good leaders make other leaders, not followers.”

More later.

Quick update: I tried skimming through one of my books but couldn’t find the exact quote. I think about this quote a lot because I realized that when I am in a group project, I often tend to manage it in such a way that I make the others dependent on me. That is actually true in a lot of aspects of my life. It’s kind of like the give a man fish and he eats for a day, teach him how to fish and he eats forever, kind of thing. I tend to just “give out the fish” because it’s often easier and quicker to do so. Gotta work on that!
