We discussed how when I first came to F3, I was in a position of follower, as time and experience grows, the fundamentals of F3 pushes us all into a natural cycle of leading and following.  This relationship between filling up in inspiration, community, and knowledge before giving it away as a leader both in F3 and out is a continual process. The process not only forms great leaders but keeps us perfecting our leadership skills as we continually return to following and learning from other members in F3.  This constant passing of the ball as leader eliminates a lot of the toxic competition in leadership that we see for men in much of society and places leadership as a communal and service-based role.   My shout out is to everyone in F3 encouraging people to step into that leadership role and continue the conversation to keep new ideas, strategies, and workouts flowing. Each voice matters. 

VQ done!
