Getting a tattoo is pretty much an irreversible act. So, you’d better think long and hard before you get one. When I see the millions of kids in Generation Y who now have one on their arm or leg or even face—I can only imagine what they’ll look like when those tattoos are sagging on a wrinkled eighty-year old body. The tattoo removal industry may be picking up in fifty years. But it will hurt.

They are permanent. We must be careful to not make them too quickly or in a knee-jerk sort of fashion. Consider this thought. Because you are a leader, you are likely a person of action. That’s why you got asked to be a leader. You are a doer. I believe however that the world is full of two kinds of people: the doers and the thinkers. The thinkers need to do more and the doers need to think more. Which one are you?(click to tweet). The good news is—just about every choice you make in your work doesn’t last forever.
