leaders are made.</li> <li>Leaders are people, and people constantly change.</li> <li>Leaders make mistakes and the higher the leader, the most costly they usually are.</li> <li>There are few secrets to leadership - more than anything it requires self-discipline.</li> <li>In the end, leadership is a choice.</li> </ul><p>Really great read.</p> <p>(<a href="https://www.amazon.com/Share-Task-General-Stanley-McChrystal/dp/159184682X/ref=sr_1_2?qid=1663805338&amp;refinements=p_27%3AGen.+Stanley+McChrystal&amp;s=books&amp;sr=1-2&amp;text=Gen.+Stanley+McChrystal">Link to the book on Amazon</a> - not an affiliate link)</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="extra-field-blocknodeprovus-blogaddtoany block block-layout-builder block-extra-field-blocknodeprovus-blogaddtoany"> <div class="content"> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.imrodmartin.com/blog/leadership/everything-rises-and-falls-leadership" data-a2a-title="Everything Rises and Falls on Leadership"><a href="#" class="a2a_button_facebook"><span class="a2a_label">Share this on Facebook</span></a><a href="#" class="a2a_button_twitter"><span class="a2a_label">Share this on Twitter</span></a><a href="#" class="a2a_button_linkedin"><span class="a2a_label">Share this on LinkedIn</span></a><a href="#" class="a2a_button_email"><span class="a2a_label">Share this on Email</span></a><a href="#" class="a2a_button_print"><span class="a2a_label">Print this</span></a></span> </div> </div> </div> </div> Thu, 22 Sep 2022 00:01:05 +0000 rodmartin 41 at https://www.imrodmartin.com What I've Learned After 160,000 Miles on a Motorcycle https://www.imrodmartin.com/blog/living-intentionally/what-ive-learned-after-160000-miles-motorcycle <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">What I&#039;ve Learned After 160,000 Miles on a Motorcycle</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Rod</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 09/06/2022 - 12:51</span> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="field-blocknodeprovus-blogfield-provus-media-image block block-layout-builder block-field-blocknodeprovus-blogfield-provus-media-image"> <div class="content"> <div class="field field--name-field-provus-media-image field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/provus_landscape_large/public/2022-09/goldwing-dragons-tail-edited.jpg?h=67ed2fcd&amp;itok=w6d1K2jo" width="1600" height="500" alt="Goldwing - Tail of the Dragon" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-provus-landscape-large" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--twocol-section layout--twocol-section--50-50"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--first"> <div class="field-blocknodeprovus-blogfield-provus-publish-date block block-layout-builder block-field-blocknodeprovus-blogfield-provus-publish-date"> <div class="content"> <div class="field field--name-field-provus-publish-date field--type-datetime field--label-hidden field__item"><time datetime="2022-09-06T12:00:00Z" class="datetime">Tuesday, September 6, 2022</time> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout__region layout__region--second"> <div class="field-blocknodeprovus-blogfield-blog-categories block block-layout-builder block-field-blocknodeprovus-blogfield-blog-categories"> <div class="content"> <div class="field field--name-field-blog-categories field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/blog/living-intentionally" hreflang="en">Living Intentionally</a></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="layout layout--onecol"> <div class="layout__region layout__region--content"> <div class="field-blocknodeprovus-blogbody block block-layout-builder block-field-blocknodeprovus-blogbody"> <div class="content"> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p dir="auto">One Friday morning last month I decided to ride to Nashville, TN for lunch.  It's 260 miles so I made it right around 1:00 pm.  I love Nashville and the ride there and back on the coutry roads was incredibly relaxing.</p> <p dir="auto">On my way back I added up the miles I’ve ridden on a motorcycle… around 160,000 (about 260,000 km).
