“You can't move people to action unless you first move them with emotion.... The heart comes before the head.”
John C Maxwell, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

“First, when we are busy, we naturally believe that we are achieving. But busyness does not equal productivity. Activity is not necessarily accomplishment. Second, prioritizing requires leaders to continually think ahead, to know what's important, to know what's next, to see how everything relates to the overall vision. That's hard work. Third, prioritizing causes us to do things that are at the least uncomfortable and sometimes downright painful."
John C Maxwell, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

“If you want to be a leader, the good news is that you can do it. Everyone has the potential, but it isn't accomplished overnight. It requires perseverance.
