Remarkable Leaders Take Action

Re-found a favorite Buckminster Fuller quotation in my journal this morning.

I seem to be a verb.

This is a very powerful thought to me.

A verb is an action word. While all of us “take action” (breathing after all is an action), some will spend their day replying to email or just “attending” meetings. Others will “be a verb”.

I want to create something new each day.

I want to lead in a proactive way.

I want to think powerful thoughts.

I want to make a difference in the world.

These are just four things – the first four things that flew from my mind to my fingers – that it means to me to be a verb.

Here is a thought for you:

As a leader are you a verb today?

I challenge you to be a verb today and everyday.

Drop a comment and let me know what being a verb means to you – or tell us what actions you will take today.
