CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Revisit the mission statement, core values, and credo of F3.
F3 is a men’s workout group, with the mission to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership. Our workouts:
- Are free of charge
- Are open to all men
- Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
- Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary
- End with a Circle of Trust
The F3 Credo is: Leave no man behind, and leave no man where you find him.
Focus was on the fact that the workouts are supposed to invigorate us to leadership. The modifier on leadership is community. How are we affecting our community? In the case of the HIMs of Brickyard, this includes the Powell community where we live and workout, our churches, our jobs, our friends and our families. We all have influence in all these areas whether we realize it or not. Someone is watching and noticing our actions. So what are you doing to lead your community?
The topic of leadership is one that I read many books on, listen to podcasts, and discuss with others. It is also an area that I struggle with continuously. I am an introvert at heart and am non-confrontational. I struggle with need to step up and be a strong leader and my desire to not be out front. I am comfortable leading from the six, but I also know that I am not always effective there. I’m thankful for all the things that F3 has taught me and continues to teach me through every workout that I Q and everyone that I participate in. I know that my F3 brothers will continue to push me to be the leader I need to be in my community, my church and my family.
Monthly challenge is still going on – 100 burpees for time. Post your results at http://bit.ly/f3knox2020.
F3 is coming to Morristown. Reach out to anyone you know in the area. April 4th at Frank Lorino Park.
