    Remember that there is a lot difference between a leader and a boss. I have a library of books to share with you if you want me to. They are in PDF and stored online. Send me a message with your email address if you want me to share.

    Congratulations Brother! My next meeting will be the last as my first time as Master of a lodge. My advice is to listen to the council of Past Master who have been there and done that. However, do not let anyone "bully" you into doing anything that you do not want to do or not doing something that you want to do. As I said at the beginning of my time as Master...."I listen to and carefully consider advice but I do not take orders".

    Congratulations! First and foremost do not hesitate to ask for help and advice from Past Masters. The Brother that proceeded me in the East had been WM twice. I asked him to be my Chaplain, and it was one of the best decisions I could have made. Having that voice of experience sitting next to me was invaluable. Hopefully you have had a chance to attend your jurisdiction's Grand Lodge annual communication when your were in the South and West. Make every effort to attend as WM as it will have a plethora of information for you. Lastly, do not take everything upon yourself. Delegation is key to accomplishment. May your year in the East be as memorable and enjoyable as mine was.
