Welcome to Season 1, Episode 11 of the Selma on Leadership podcast. In this episode, me and my and co-host Kristen McCall discuss how to be content in every season of life, whether you’re an older seasoned leader or a young mom of toddlers and all the seasons in between. Often times it’s easy to miss the beauty of the season you’re in right now by looking too far ahead and wishing for different circumstances.
In this episode you will learn:
- Why you can’t have everything in every season of life
- What “If only” thinking is and how it leads to discontentment
- About the 80/20 rule and why changing your perspective is so crucial
- Why as a leader it’s important to know your team and what season of life they are in

“We can miss life if we’re always thinking that it would be better if something was different, rather than focusing on the wonder and the opportunity in the season that you’re in. Believe it or not, those little toddler stage and with these little babies, it will not always be that way.”
“Whatever season you’re in, and as a leader, pay attention to the seasons of life of those that are under your leadership and make sure you’re giving room for those seasons. Blessing those seasons, and making the seasons of life part of the strength of your organization as you put together teams that take people from every season of life will make everyone richer and stronger.”
“You’ll get to the next season soon enough, and there’ll be new growth opportunities for you there, but part of where you are now is exactly what you need to become all that God wants you to be. I love that particularly with families, with young children, you don’t want to miss the joy of those children. Every season is the best with those children, and you need to make sure you’re not missing it.”
