Chapter 2

Being Intentional and Going First

What are you committed to making happen and by when? What does “committed” mean? What does your commitment mean to others?

You are now outfitted with the LEADING, IN–ON, and CHANGE VERSUS TRANSFORMATION PRIMES. You are now a person who clearly knows what he or she is doing and what he or she is not doing with respect to leading, working on systems, and causing change or transformation. Each week, when you plan how you will use your time, you are actively and intentionally allocating your time to either running or improving the current system or creating a whole new system At this point, you are dangerous to the status quo.

Now that you can rightly allocate your time, how do you make the most of it? Chapter 2 is about acting boldly and powerfully in a way that inspires others to follow.

What is it about some people who seem to be able to attract the best and brightest to help them accomplish so much? They have an air of confidence about them, even in the midst of uncertainty and ambiguity. You may be one of them. If so, the next three PRIMES will validate what you already know. If you admire someone like this, the PRIMES that follow will outfit you to access untapped power within yourself and use that power to make things happen.

Simply let your “Yes” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No.
