The name of my developed Leadership Philosophy is what I like to call the P.K.C. philosophy. I took the three main ideas in my “Why” statement, “Inspire others to merge knowledge, creativity, and passion to create endless possibilities.” and would like to develop it into something practical and livable. P in P.K.C. stands for Passion, K standing for Knowledge, and C standing for Creativity. Knowledge, Creativity, and Passion are the three main qualities that I would like to live my life by and are the traits to make everyone happy and successful.
When thinking of this philosophy, P.K.C. is more of something to work on personally. I would describe P.K.C. as a plan for my future. I’ll explain my map of P.K.C. to help guide me through the rest of my life. Just because it is labeled P.K.C. doesn’t mean that any of these qualities are any more important than each other.
Step 1 is find your passion. For the longest time I really did not know what I truly wanted to do with my life. I had always wanted to be an educator and help out teenagers/high school students, but my parents always pushed me away from it. After stressing myself out because I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do, I finally realized that education was my passion and working as a teacher or administrator would be my dream job.
Step 2 is to obtain knowledge. After finding your passion, knowledge is the next trait and my current trait that I am working on for my P.K.C. map. Since I am going into Education, you could probably tell that knowledge is something that I strive to gain. After discovering your passion, I believe it is vital to learn as much as you can. You can never know everything, but that doesn’t mean you can’t strive to. Knowledge is power and with it only puts you so much further ahead of everybody else. I’m currently enrolled in college doing my best to learn the most I possibly can so I can educate and spread the knowledge to the next generation of children.
Step 3 is adding creativity. Creativity is something very special because you can do what ever you want with it. Putting your own touch to something, no matter what it is, adds a little bit of you and makes it your own. When you find your passion and gain knowledge, what makes you different from anyone else? I think creativity may not sound important, but in reality creativity is what makes life colorful. When you work really hard on something and are excited, it makes everyone else excited as well. Make sure to add creativity to top off your hard work and dedication.
The P.K.C. plan is my philosophy on how to make your future both successful and happy. This plan might not necessarily be the best or worst philosophy, but it is how I’m trying to create my own future. Just because Passion, Knowledge, and Creativity are what I believe are the three most important traits, doesn’t mean they are for everybody. Everyone has his or her own leadership style and philosophies and I think the P.K.C. plan wouldn’t hurt to test out.
