It’s been long since I have been here last time. This period of the year is always very intense and this month especially full of things because of some new volunteers and important changes in school, because of our baby and other things going on and needing my full attention, alhamdulillah.
I realize more and more that my role as a leader in so many different areas asks for constant personal improvement and development. The responsibility that comes with all these leadership-roles sometimes nearly overwhelms me and I understand more and more how much I need to grow and to learn myself in order of being capable to hold these roles and to respond to what they require and to what God has entrusted me with, inchallah.
At the moment I am reading a very inspiring book called “Managing the nonprofit organization” (by Peter F.Drucker) – a book I received from Christian Hlade, the founder of the famous austrian travel company Weltweitwandern, who is a role model of a leader himself.
By reading it I learn so much about myself but also about how to guide and how to encourage other people to give their best.
Questions like “what do you want to be remembered for?” or “how can you improve yourself and where can you really make a difference?” push me to work harder on my self, to go further and to aim for higher things.
This sometimes is very exhausting, challenging and needs a lot of energy, but it also gives a deep feeling of satisfaction and sense and it just fits so well with my religion and on what we as Muslims should focus on, alhamdulillah.
What are you working on? What are your personal aspirations?
Wishing you well, sense and joy in all what you do! Masalama.
