10 years ago, I spoke to a few hundred students at a high school leadership conference in Ibadan, Nigeria. I spoke on the Tripod of Responsibility.

I asked them three questions:
1. What are you doing for yourself?
2. What will the world have to thank you for?
3. What is the value of your life?

With each of these questions, I was challenging them to invest in personal development, create innovative solutions that advance the world, and to give back consistently. That was my tripod; that remains my tripod.

I love that closing quote from August Wilson: "You are responsible for the world you live in. It is not the government's responsibility. It is not your school's or your social club's or your church's or your neighbour's or your fellow citizen's. It is yours, utterly and singularly yours.

What were you doing 10 years ago? What are you doing today?

When I have led teams or mentored people, I have often asked them to think about this question: "What do people say about you when you're not in the room, particularly those who have some influence over your (career) advancement?" That question sits on the border of character and reputation.

No matter how nicely you dress a pig, it is still a pig. No matter how much make-up you put on a cow, it will still moo. Reputation may be short-lived, but character lasts long. It is the things you do daily, especially when no one sees you that adds up to your character. As with everything else in life, reputation may be lost in a minute, but character lives long. Invest in building good character.

Who REALLY are you, when no one is watching?

This was an absolutely fascinating read. What we see from the outside and what others experience from the inside could both be true, but very different at the same time. https://t.co/iItqHPR00X
