We had a saying in Indian Guides that the job seeks the man, not visa versa. There you go, ho-ho-hoing all over the floor!
In any event, one of these days, you’ll feel the long arm of responsibility reach out and tap you on the shoulder. Maybe they (those running the show for the moment; tomorrow they return to the ranks, or so the rhetoric goes) ask you to be on a Committee, a Committee Chair, Director, or Officer.
Second Step Have no confidence in others, whether they’re elected or appointed officers. Let them know you’re keeping your eye on them.
Number Six Step is essential if you want to fail as a leader:
No. 8 Never plan an agenda for meetings. People will love your carefree manner? Gavel? Opening? Committee & Project Reports? Introduction of speaker & guests? That’s all for the birds.
No 9 Remain unaware of help, advise or counsel available in greater Rock’dom wisdom. Throw those letters from other clubs (CFMS and AFMS) in the waste basket. Our club is the thing, so who needs others opinions?
P.S. We know you’ll never do any of these things! These are merely positives reversed -- reverse them again and you have ten good ways to lead!
