I had a small sign in my bedroom growing up and that I took to my dorm at Carolina that said, "Lead, Follow or Get Out of the Way."
I think that wise people know which of those things to do and have enough self knowledge to pick accordingly and perhaps their choice will vary due to the situation or circumstances in their lives. Unwise people will not only choose incorrectly, they will often OBSTRUCT progress by their incorrect choice. Deluded people might even claw and kick their way into the lead just to feed their egos or because they have ZERO self knowledge and have never learned from life's lessons. Just because someone wants to be a leader and perhaps they are pretending to be a leader currently, doesn't mean they are effective. What do you think?
