We’re on this Journey Together, Lead With Me

I’m away for some R&R this week so thought I’d share this short, inspirational post from the archives. I hope you enjoy.

What I want for you.

I want you to be happy.

To learn.

To grow.

To be your best.

I’m for you.

I want to help overcome your struggles.

I want you to feel cared for.


That you belong here.

That we need you.

That this is worth doing.

I want more than getting things done.

Checking off the list.

Meeting the objectives.

Moving up the ladder.

Pleasing the boss.

I want to serve you.

Know you.

Laugh with you.

Talk to you.

Share life with you.

We’re on this journey together.

Work is part of life.

Let’s make it better.

Am I crazy?

Maybe I am.

I want more out of my short years.

More out of this process of earning a living.

I don’t want a work life.

And the rest of my life.

I want it all.

The whole story.

I’m tired of getting by.

Working for a living.

Leading like it’s a job.

I want to lead like it’s a mission.

Like it matters.

I want to feel it.

Not just do it.

I just hope you’ll believe me.

Open your mind.

Share your heart.

And join me in the dream.

To make this real.

To make it better.

To give ourselves to each other.

For each other.

Even when the work is hard.

And it feels like a grind.

This connection can lighten the load.

And brighten our day.

Give us something to hold on to.

Something to work for.

Something better.

Lead with me.


  1. Scott, This is a beautiful poem! I know it was written from your heart. Wow, what a great leadership you have. Your staff is very fortunate to have you as a leader. And I am so grateful to have you as a friend.
    Please keep writing.


    1. Thank you Dee. I’m sure I don’t always live this out as well as I intend to but I will keep trying. I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your feedback.
