Huh? Just because my pants got a little tight you don’t see a damn bell around my neck, do you? Oh, that’s not what you meant…..
You know, same as totin’ the rock, carrying the load; are you the go to person who others look to to lead the way; get it done?
And of course, we always gotta have more cow bell, right?
Lead cow of a herd
Herd? Sounds like a social roundup to me. Sheep might be a better analogy, but I couldn’t find bell sheep in Wikipedia.
If everybody thinks they are the lead dog who’s going to follow?
I know we all want to be uniquely unique, but we are all part of a herd at one time or another, right?
Talk is cheap
I’ve been listening to all the rhetoric being bandied about with the US Presidential election on the horizon, and there is plenty of finger pointing back and forth and grandiose promises being made. Can one man really right the ship and make a significant difference?
Yes, we are talking about the leader of the free world, but how much influence does this person really have in getting things done his way?
I’m thinking the President should be able to do whatever the heck he wants to, right? I mean, what a tough job. At least a 4-yr hall pass, get out of jail free card would certainly be in order don’t you think?
Don’t you know who I am?
However, if your platform is big talk and promises and willing to lay it all out there, the voters should be able to hold you accountable. But politics these days are more sound bites and image; more celebrity than substance for the most part. Some of these leaders get way too much credit when things are going well, and way too much blame when they are not.
Oh yeah, we are not supposed to talk about politics in here……my bad……
It ain’t bragging if you can do it
Yeah, and I suppose it ain’t cheating if you don’t get caught either, huh?
Raise your hand if you like a braggart. And doesn’t it piss you off even more when they are right? This is the person it’s ok to poke a finger in their eye. Sumbich….
Generally, the louder you have to proclaim anything, the less likely I want to hear what you have to say. I appreciate your passion but I’m pretty sure you won’t be changing my mind.
Especially in politics and religion…………oops, dropped the religion bomb too; I’m probably going to get my social card pulled……
Confidence is a good thing though, it can work well for you in many ways. Plus, somebody has to be able to make the tough decisions. If everything was done by committee and meetings, nothing would ever get done.
What does a good leader look like to you?
Tall, distinguished, white, male? Easy now hot rod, you just about offended everybody on that one.
Before I get too far off track, do you think the better looking someone is, the easier their path to success?
Can you be a leader in some things; like a particular project but be a follower in others?
You can find plenty of appropriate adjectives to describe a leader, but here are the traits I look for:
What would be your top 5; what would make your leader a bell cow?
I surprised you didn’t I?
I am sure you thought there was no way I was going to make this circular enough to finally bring it around to circle the wagons and actually make a point, huh?
I had to put down one of the lead horses but I got it done; did it make any sense?
Lead, follow, or just get out of the way, right?
