Titus 2 Tuesday - We Don't Have to Reinvent the Wheel

Photobucket

What have learned from another woman this week? (or ever)

Write your own "Titus 2 Post" (linking back here somewhere within the body of your post) and enter your link below!

This week I am honoring my friend, Angela. She and I met when we moved here to VA. We ended up being thrust into leadership together and I learned a couple valuable things from her in the midst of leading alongside of her.

The first thing: How to delegate. I learned what a healthy balance of delegation can do to make leading something much less overwhelming.

And Secondly, what stands out most to me, was something that Angela was often known to say. "We don't have to reinvent the wheel." Meaning, if someone else has already done this successfully, we can look at how they did it; personalize it, and then implement it without having to start from scratch. Being that we were thrust into leadership mid stream; it was essential that we applied this principle often. The wisdom in this principle is still a blessing to me.

So Angela, thank you. I learned much from you my friend! There is much more I could say about Angela; you may hear more about her another day!

What have you learned from another wise woman? ALL of us can learn something from one another. Join in and then go read these posts!

Oh, isn't that so true, too. Why spend so much time creating something that's already been created? I have to remind myself of that EVERY SINGLE DAY ~ especially in my career! Thanks for sharing!

The name you chose just fit my mom so well! Have a wonderful week!

It's totally a pride thing, I think. We want to be so special, that we try to reinvent the wheel. Of course, we need to realize, as folks created in His image--we're special already. There's no fixing that better.

Great words, as always.

Definitely going to remember that..."we don't have to reinvent the wheel"! Great advice.

Hi Shanda!

I am so sorry I haven't posted for awhile. I seem to just be in a friendship funk lately. Nothing terrible, just kinda non-remarkable.

I am hoping to get back to the T2T blogs soon. I am still reading the posts and being blessed by them tho.

:)

What a blessing to learn and lead together. And I agree with Gretchen, it really is a pride thing. A good leader is confident and secure enough to know when to delegate and to resist re-inventing the wheel.

Hey friend! thanks for sending your knowledge my way! I got the Mr. Linkie thingy all set up and am ready to go! LOL
