Lead by example.
Demand no less from others than you yourself actually give.
Kill bad behavior –
Yours; ours; theirs…anyone’s…
But here is the thing.
Make the first move.
Swallow your “pride” if need be and reach out.
Be a leader.
But if you do –
Go all the way.
Demand it of yourself.
Don’t go half-measure.
Don’t cheap out.
If you are going to lead…if you are going to be the leader…bow low – or don’t bother.
Anything less makes no demand; presents no challenge.
If we all bowed low – the world would be a better place.
What do you think?
PS – Just in case you think I’m starry-eyed and unrealistic – just in case it doesn’t work…
