Chick-fil-A is ruining my sleep... In a good way!

CFA LC 2012 Opening Video from GiANT Impact on Vimeo.

Chick-fil-A Leadercast 2012 Opening Video. I am addicted to the 12 piece chicken nugget combo with those perfectly salty waffle fries and fresh squeezed lemonade. The closest Chick-fil-A is about 65 miles from my house. Is that too far to drive for fast food?

Not only are they good at fries, Chick-fil-A is an industry leader. Better yet, they are reinvesting into leaders with an annual simulcast on leadership. You can check out all of the details here: www.chick-fil-aleadercast.com. You can even sign up to host a simulcast in your community. Could somebody please host one here? Could you please open up a Chick-Fil-A while you’re at it?

The video couldn’t have started in a better way:

“Your alarm clock is more than just a clock, it’s a starting line. A green light. A sounding of the gun. The starting of a new day. Or the repetition of the one before. You are faced with choices, some mundane, some significant. But every decision sets you on a path towards somewhere.”

I can only think of one thing that would have made the video better, eating a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich while watching it. And some fries…

I have never really thought of my alarm clock as a starting line, I treat it like a nemesis who has evil plans to stop my dreaming in its tracks. I look at the snooze button as my ally, helping to fend off the effects of that evil alarm clock. I have read the articles by leaders from the Chick-fil-A conference, like Michael Hyatt, who tell me not to snooze. They are reasonable and compelling articles. But that extra 15 minutes seems so wonderful. I’m not necessarily lazy and I don’t hate my job, I just like snoozing with my wife.

I don’t know that I’ll stop using the snooze button, but there are other areas of life, other choices that I make, where I could have more impact.

What if I treated every choice like this video suggests? Could I really be the leader that they talk about?

I am going to pick up some Chick-fil-A and ponder that. In the mean time, would someone choose to host a simulcast in Western Colorado?

In what area of life will you choose to be a stronger leader today? Your home? Your finances? Your work? Your church or community? What decisions could you steward a bit better?
