Quote of the day: Ken Blanchard

"The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority."

-Ken Blanchard

We aren't people that want to pull anyone in any particular direction. We want to be people that push other in the direction they already want to go.

I was told once, by someone that has a lot more influence then they give themselves credit for, that willingness is a byproduct of the actions.

It's not this seemingly overwhelming feeling that come rushing out in a constant stream. But they consistency of action creates the momentum to keep moving even when we don't particularly want to.

Keep moving. Keep pushing. And become a person of influence.
