In honor of Father’s day, I wanted to tell you about a prominent “small-time leader” in life, my daddy, Odus Tate. Daddy modeled the qualities of being patient, doing good work, and, most importantly, serving others selflessly.
Looking back and I now better understand and appreciate his values and approach to working and living. I see now how my father’s amazing parenting and guidance helped me find my path to a successful career and a happy life. Daddy was always using his carpentry skills to help struggling people feel more secure and safe in life. Today I apply my writing and coaching to help people who are grappling with direction and change find their peaceful and life-giving career.
This father’s day, intentionally create a moment with your father to share some memories and lessons you’ve learned from him and let him tell you a tale or two as well. Nothing says I appreciate you more than a listening ear.
