"I get up every morning determined to both change the world and to have one hell of a good time.
Sometimes this makes planning the day difficult." E.B. White
While I love that quote, I don't exactly follow it. Well, not the first part, anyway. I've completely gotten over my want/need/desire to change the world. Fact is, the world is changed by whoever has the loudest voice, the most stamina, the biggest guns, and the strongest financial portfolio. I have none of those things.
What I do have is this little plot of land and a moderately distinctive sphere of influence. It is with this that I will do whatever work I can. I will continue to lead an exemplary life. I do like who I am, and what I have accomplished and what I am still planning on doing with my life.
I sometimes forget an adage that I feel is important for a leader. Pull, don't push. I've counted too many times in the last few years that I pushed or stalled. I'm not pleased with the results, and I can pinpoint why. So the only pushing I'm doing right now is pushing dead-weight out of the way so that I can go back to pulling those not anchored in the muck along in my wake. (for those not interested in my wake, create your own. It's a massive body of water and an endless amount of room for us all to play together)
Ok, so maybe I actually do follow that quote. I'm just defining the world as my little portion of it. The part that I actually can effect.
