Good leaders don't drive people; good leaders fuel the drive in people.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Performance is about desire and drive.

Enthusiasm takes energy.

Leaders are uniquely positioned to fuel the drive in people.

Leaders have the power to re-spark fires.

If today you can't find time to do things right then tomorrow you will find time to do them again.

Have you ever noticed - the people who complain the loudest about having no time tend to spend far more time than others spend fixing errors and redoing work?

People with lesser ambitions should not impress their non-champion beliefs on champions or other more-confident competitors.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If everyone watered down their self-confidence in an effort to conform to the average then every competition would end in an across-the-board tie...with everyone finishing either first or last.

[First? or Last?...what a conundrum...with everyone average there would be no pessimists or optimists to argue one way or the other.]

Nothing meaningful happens without stress. 

Stress, when coupled with positive mindsets, invokes the wonderful things that bring about courage.

Once upon a time there were no walls. People must have beat their heads against something else.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When you are beating your head against a wall the first thing to do is recognize, your head doesn't fare well when you pit it against a wall.

Heads don't fare well when you beat it against walls.

If you saw others beating their heads against walls, would you join them?

Walls versus Heads...the smart money is on Walls.

...all of this in support of changing for the better.
