Leadership Quote: Success Or Significance?

Opt 4 Aug 31

This month’s leadership quote:

“Success is when you add value to yourself.  Significance is when you add value to others”

-John Maxwell

I have heard it said, that the time to “give back” is in the later phase of our lives. This quote is a reminder that giving back is really a lifelong habit; a habit of giving. As I think about people who have made an impact on me and on our society, they are remembered because of the value they added. It’s one thing to build a successful enterprise or career and another to achieve significance.

Which do you want?
