When the boss is away, that’s not the time to slack off, that’s the time to step up.

When your business is extremely busy, that’s not the time to cave in under the pressure, that’s the time to step up.

When you’re behind on a deadline, that’s not the time to make excuses, that’s the time to step up.

When your team is behind late in the last quarter, that’s not the time to give up, that’s the time to step up.

When your partner is unwell, that’s not the time to let your kids down, that’s the time to step up.

When there is injustice and genuine persecution in the world, that’s not the time to look the other way and stay silent, that’s the time to step up.

It’s too easy to take the comfortable option, but we need more people with the resilience, character and courage to step up when the time comes.

And that includes you.
