When I completed the registration for our internal 12 week Fitness Challenge, I had no idea what I was agreeing to when I check the box marked “YES! I’m interested in being a Team Captain.” Foolishly, I thought there would be so many volunteers that my services wouldn’t be needed. Ha! I was quickly proved wrong. Very wrong. After reading the email congratulating me on my Captain status, I immediately thought to myself, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Taking a few deep breaths and thinking this decision through, I focused on all the positives of taking on this role. Then I reminded myself of a statement that I heard Dr. Phil make at a conference many years ago: “We all have the same amount of time. We all have 24 hours in our day.” With that in mind, I set out to not only take on this task, but to OWN it! But, how?
