It's easy to get lost and distracted in the noise — and forget what truly matters

In our fast-paced worlds of leadership, it’s easy to become consumed by the relentless demands and pressures that come with leading ourselves, our teams and our families.

Author and founder Karin Hadadan's "10 Rules of Life" from her work, Beauty in the Stillness, serve as a poignant reminder of the simplicity and clarity that can be found amidst the chaos.

Hadadan’s rules are not just philosophical musings; they’re practical guidelines that can transform our approach to leadership by grounding us in what really matters and what's most important in life:

  1. Be present. The now is the only moment you have. Don't ruin it by dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.

  2. Give it time. Things are quietly unfolding, even if you can't see it yet. Time heals everything.

  3. Be grateful. The more blessings you count, the more blessings will flow in.

  4. Exude kindness. You never know what others are going through. Choose to spread more love.

  5. Let it go. By releasing what no longer serves you, you create space for what will.

  6. Don't compare. The only person you should try to out-do is the previous versions of yourself.

  7. Take responsibility. Only you are in charge of your happiness. The outcome of your life is based on your own thoughts, decisions and actions.

  8. Embrace change. See it as an opportunity for growth and transformation. Nothing changes if nothing changes.

  9. Cultivate resilience. When things go downhill, choose to bounce forward instead of staying stuck.

  10. See the light. There is always something to smile or laugh about. Choose to see the good in every situation.

Incorporating Hadadan's "10 Rules of Life" into our leadership philosophy can profoundly impact how we lead ourselves and others. 

They serve as a reminder that amidst the responsibilities and pressures of leadership, there is always a simpler, more profound way to navigate life.

Each day, we have a unique opportunity to cultivate a leadership style that is not only effective but also deeply human.

Let’s strive to lead with these principles — finding beauty in the stillness and strength in simplicity.
