Consider the organization you dream of building. How big is it? How may people does it engage? How many lives does it change?
Now consider the person running that organization. What does he or she do every day?
What does she read, and how much? Does he watch tv? How often does she exercise?
Now get personal. What does she do on the weekends? How long does he sleep, and whom does she hang out with? How does he treat people when he is worn out, and wishes they would go away? (That one hits particularly close to home for me.)
Now, what if you or I begin acting like that person, every day, starting now?
