This week we have been looking at the gauges that measure the different areas of the life of a leader.

Distance to Empty GaugeA leader can achieve balance in his spiritual, relational, and emotional life and yet still not be effective. How? If he fails to give attention to his physical gauge.

Your body is a vital part of your overall success as a leader. What does your physical gauge say? Or better yet, what do the bathroom scales say? They don’t lie.

When looking at your level of fitness there are three important areas and some “gauge” questions to consider.

1. Exercise. Are you committed to cardiovascular fitness 4-5 times each week? Do you do any strength training and stretching on a consistent basis?

2. Nutrition. How is your diet? Do you eat a lot of processed and packaged foods, or do fruits and vegetables fill your plate? Are you addicted to sugar and caffeine?

3. Rest. Do you have a consistent pattern of sleep, or are you burning the candle at both ends? Do you get 7-8 hours of good rest every night?

Focus in the areas of exercise, nutrition, and rest, is required if you want to have longevity as a leader.

Pay attention to your physical gauge and respond to what it is saying before it is too late. Others are depending on you to be “fit to lead.”

Remember, “The pain of discipline is less than the pain of regret.”
