Leaders Don’t Float

Reading Time: 1 minute

Going with the flow…

Riding the current …

Obeying the laws of physics…

Scratching the itch…

Applying conventional wisdom …

Taking the road most traveled …

Following the path of least resistance …

Reacting …

Avoiding risk …

Self-preservation …

It doesn’t take leadership to do any of these things — just a pulse. Inertia isn’t a leadership strategy, and floating isn’t an accomplishment, even if you end up moving forward. Leaders swim … or sink … but waves are a by-product either way.
