Mother Teresa – So many leaders have the idea that to lead greatly you have to focus on everyone. Mother Teresa took a different approach. She saw the poor. The hurt. The dying. And she knew something had to be done. When you know that there’s that many hurting people out there, you might think you’d go to work helping them all. Mother Teresa didn’t.

Instead, she got to work helping one person. AT A TIME.

She did what she could for the person right in front of her. She learned to FOCUS on the immediate need. She decided to HELP the person right then. Leadership example? Take on one person at a time. Doing so makes a difference.
