Entrepreneur Club, Week 2 “Caring but Not Caring”
July 7, 2014 § Leave a comment
Dear budding Entrepreneurs,
Last week we took a brief diversion from E-Myth Mastery to discuss another book I stayed up until 2 AM reading:
David Marquet – Creating leadership at every level.
His basic premise is that leaders should be creating “sub-leaders” rather than followers, by giving up Control (through providing Clarity and Competence). Doing that successfully requires an attitude of “Caring but not Caring.” We have to care about the Mission and the People we serve — but NOT care about our own Ego!
Luke 9:24 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.
Each of shared and prayed for each other with how we’re wrestling with fear, performance, and impatience because we still tend to care about (and trust) “us” rather than God.
This tied in incredibly well with Anne Delke’s sermon at Kingsway Moreland yesterday, about how we can easily commit to “Good ideas” rather than “God’s ideas” — and how that can lead to things going horribly, irrevocably wrong…
