That is a rhetorical question for you and a “serious” one for me. “Do I take myself too seriously?” is the question I began to ask myself several days ago.
It is true that many leaders take themselves too seriously. These leaders are always all about work and are never about play. I quickly realized that that wasn’t me. But I also realized that there have been times that I have taken myself too seriously.
“But maybe it is necessary in my case,” was my next thought. I grew up without a father figure around for most of life. Maybe I still need to compensate for his lack of maturity.
Here is my answer. Yes, there are times when I need to be serious. Yes, because of where I am at in life I need to accept responsibility and be a mature adult. Do I need to be crazy serious all the time? No, absolutely not at all.
So take a load off with me, enjoy life, kick back and relax…just for a little while!
