Character not reputation
I've been reading some terrific things lately. Re-reading Everyday Church by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis, which is looking like my book of the year, has been great and I had an excellent day with Pete Scazzero on Tuesday on Emotionally Healthy Leadership - just the right combination of inspiring and informing and challenging.
This quote is from a book I picked up at a conference a year ago and have finally got round to reading - that familiar to anyone else at all? Growing Leaders by James Lawrence is something I am reading a little of each evening, it's fine stuff! Here's a wise quote from it:
"Be more comcerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are." (p.123)
