Thrive (verb) – grow vigorously; make steady progress.
A few years back, I found myself stuck in a rut. It wasn’t that I was living destructively, nor was I unhappy. But I was just drifting.
And the thing about drifting is we don’t just sit there, we go backward not forward.
When you shut off the engine of a boat in the middle of a lake, the boat drifts – and it usually drifts away from your destination.
If we desire to lead effectively, then we need to be intentional about thriving.
Now thriving does not mean perfection; rather it involves movement and steady progress.
So what are some steps we can take to thrive:
1. Be a reader.
You’ve heard it said: if you’re not reading, you aren’t leading.
