    Handling Problems

    John C. Maxwell helps us size up leaders. The measure of the quality of a leader is the size of a problem they are willing to tackle.

    Some leaders are truly afraid of problems. They cringe and whine while successful leaders tackle it as a challenge. These competent people analyze their obstacle using tenacity and creativity. Seasoned leaders know King Solomon’s wisdom that problems are inevitable as rain as long as we live. They anticipate obstructions and are not overwhelmed or intimidated by them.

    After disassembling the monstrous problem, they use their microscope to separate facets of the obstacle. Decisions are also made using the overall view of the entire situation. And … the final conclusion is made on a day they feel good, not on a stressful or negative day.

    So, let’s be one of the leaders who is unafraid to tackle a man-sized problem like Samson did with the lion that stood in the middle of the road on the way to his girlfriend’s house.
