on Leadership and Vision

"[Abraham Lincoln] had a remarkable ability to see the potential of others and to appeal to that (and at times to put up with their worst) by inviting them into the grander vision he held for America, a vision that included both himself and them. For the sake of that vision he could overlook much, inspire much, give much, and sacrifice much. Perhaps that’s the definition of a leader – one who not only sees a better future but is willing to sacrifice one’s personal interest in order to inspire others to move toward it."
