Through many years of coaching leaders there is one ever-present theme: There never seems to be enough time to get everything done: work life, home life, spiritual life, exercise and sleep? It’s gnawing at all of us. That’s why I think our ideas about “Blending the Seven Fs: faith, family, finances, fitness, friends, fun and future” are so compelling. It’s the reason why so many people find the Good Leadership Breakfast Series something they just can’t miss.
What gets scheduled gets done
One of the most popular “Success Habits” we recommend through coaching is buying Season Tickets to something that feeds your soul: football, the orchestra, Broadway theater…whatever makes you happy and motivates you to invite friends along with you. It works because purchasing a ticket package encourages planning and thinking ahead that makes “blending” effective. And it feels good to make a good-faith contribution to something positive in our community.
Make an investment in yourself today
Season Tickets to the Good Leadership Breakfast Series are on sale today. As a reader of this weekly blog you are drawn to the concept of radiating goodness. Attending the breakfast is a booster shot of positivity because the whole room is radiating goodness. When you buy two Season Tickets you and a friend will be blending the Seven Fs together. Remember: we’ve had 13 sell-outs in a row – Season Tickets are the only way to guarantee your seat!

The speakers this fall include Tim and Jonathan Schmidt on August 15, a father-and-son team who climbed Mount Rainier together. Jonathan is a restaurant entrepreneur, Tim is a Thrivent executive and my co-author of the What Really Works book – he’s also our first returning speaker. My recommended reading today is True North, by Bill George. Tim found this book to be a catalyst in writing his personal mission statement.
Calvin Allen (September) recently won Diversity Leader of the Year by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal for his work as a culture developer at HealthPartners. Tony Sanneh (October) is a two-time World Cup soccer player and Major League Soccer star who returned to his hometown of St. Paul to develop a foundation for disadvantaged youth. Cathy ten Broeke (November) is a nationally-decorated community leader who is doing groundbreaking work as the Coordinator to End Homelessness at the City of Minneapolis/Hennepin County.
Good leaders buy Season Tickets because it feels good to make positive commitments to our community. And they bring friends to multiply their investments.
