"Never forget your dreams, ignore your family, suppress your feelings, neglect your friends, or forget to behappy. Errors of omission are a particularly dangerous type of mistake, because we often make them by default."

What makes a good leader?

Why in the world would you give "honesty" a 99% instead of 100% rating? Have you ever waited on your wife to get dressed for church on Sunday morning, and after several passes by the mirror she asks, do I look fat in this dress? Well, the dress could be as big as the side of a barn with more than ample space to paint "See Rock City" on there and what are you going to say?

Communication 85% rating? Yes, 15% of the people just won't get it. Delegating 75% of the time? If you can delegate the things that you know you are not good at, to someone who is, you can be successful. Creativity 65%? You don't have to be super-creative, just more creative than average. Too much creativity can be counter productive.

Commitment is the one thing you better have nailed down in order to be a successful leader. You might miss that 1% on honesty, but it is your commitment that will you get you both to church on time.
