Chad excited for his promotion got to work early. His role of Director came with the pay raise and corner office he always desired. The extra money would allow for house upgrades his wife had been wanting for years.

With enthusiasm setting the tone, Chad couldn’t wait to hold his first staff meeting and propose a vision for his department.

One by one, his department colleagues came into work. Each brought a slight curious anticipation about what changes the new leader may make. Within thirty minutes of his last departmental colleague’s arrival, Chad’s stomach began to churn. He was reluctant to organize a meeting.

He began to question whether his new direction would be right. Would his team fully embrace the direction shift he wanted to propose and implement. Given his emotional status, Chad thought it would be better tomorrow once everyone’s emotions settled down.

Day by day, he kept putting the meeting off.

Then, a week went by.

Then, a month.

Suddenly he was called into the Vice President’s office.

The Vice President asked what the issue was in implementing the changes. Chad could barely look the VP in the eye. His words turned into a mumble on why he hesitated to implement. With anxiety worsening, Chad called in sick the next day.

Hesitation causes pain.

What’s one small step you can take today?

Make a courageous choice and take that step today.

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
