Jan 16th F3QSOURCE Daily Leadership Message Scriptures and Quotes

Leadership Message

Let’s face it.

F3 is so much more than a fitness group. It’s a training ground for men serious about becoming the purposeful leaders we were all created to be. We don’t just want to build our bodies; we also want to grow our minds and strengthen our spirits. That’s why aspiring HIMs pursue the other two Fs (faith and fellowship) beyond the handful of COT minutes following a workout; and they do it using a roadmap we call “QSource.” Here’s why you should get familiar with it before January 1st.
QSource is defined in the F3 Lexicon as “The Wisdom from which the Q draws to exercise Virtuous Leadership.” This wisdom comes in the form of a small group study/discussion guide for putting the F3 leadership philosophy into practice. The QSource handbook delves into the four quadrants of Preparedness (Get Right, Live Right, Lead Right and Leave Right) by identifying, exploring, and even questioning the individual components (QPoints) that comprise each quadrant. Consisting of 50 lessons, QSource is F3’s curriculum for a year’s worth of weekly meetings. You’ll find that it is a highly impactful tool for open dialogue that leads to personal growth and greater trust and accountability within your Region.

WHEN SHOULD YOU USE QSOURCE?
That’s up to you. Many groups tack on a QSource meeting after workouts. Others may use it as a separate, midweek checkpoint. We even know of men incorporating the QSource curriculum into their once-a-week business lunches to infuse leadership into their office culture. If you endeavor to launch a QSource group, we only ask that you be consistent, punctual, purposeful, and respectful of participants’ schedules.

WHERE DO WE GET QSOURCE?
For now, we are encouraging everyone who wants to start a QSource Group to reach out to Stinger (Twitter / @Stinger_F3) to get your copy of the QSource material to get started. We’re publishing the full and final QSource book in the beginning of 2019, so in the meantime until that’s complete, you can go to Stinger or online to

.
Each lesson will include:

Statement- QSource begins each lesson with a statement of the main discussion topic.

E.g., THE PURSUIT OF PROPER PERSONAL ALIGNMENT

Socratic- QSource always provides three thought-provoking questions to initiate discussion among the group.

E.g., Does service to others require a man to abandon service to himself?

Spur- QSource ends each lesson with a truth to which we believe every meeting discussion will eventually lead, a takeaway to chew on in the subsequent days.

E.g., An unfit man is a slave to his lack of self-control.

Along with the PowerPoint guided format, we encourage each QSource meeting to have a clear beginning and end (COT). Similar to an F3 workout, every man who attends regularly should eventually serve as the meeting’s Q. Use these Tips for the Leader to help make your first QSource a success.
One more valuable resource is the QSource Index. It’s a quick way to access and review all of the F3 QPoints for Preparedness.

Isaiah 43:18-19

DECISION MAKING:
Two Employees, the Director and a Genie A salesman, an account manager and their director were walking to lunch when they found a very old lamp.
A salesman, an account manager and their director were walking to lunch when they found a very old lamp.

The manager rubbed the lamp and a genie came out and said, “I will make your wish come true. One wish each.
” The salesman said “Me first! I want to be in Tahiti, sunbathing with a pina colada in my hand, surrounded by beautiful girls.” And poof! He was gone.
“Me next!” said the account manager. “I want to be in Maldives, relaxing at a spa resort together with the love of my life.” And poof! He was gone.
“OK, your turn,” the genie said to the director. The director said, “I want those two idiots back in the office as soon as I finish my lunch.”
Moral of the story: It is strongly advised to hear the opinion of all the people in the meeting room, especially that of your superiors, before you are hurried into a decision.
