Management is Easier, But...


Management, in the short term, is easier than Leadership.

Management is about control. It is reaching your arms way out and grabbing onto as much as you can, and controlling it.

Leadership is about inspiring a whole bunch of things that are out of your control.

Management is about power. Leadership is about empowerment.

Management is commanding action. Leadership is inspiring excellence.

Management, in the short term, is easier.

But you will NEVER, EVER achieve the kind of Leap in life that I so frequently talk about, the kind your heart and soul longs for, the kind your company, your family, your community - the world anxiously awaits for you to make...

unless you lead.
