-Leadership is not defined by talent. Look for an opportunity to break from the pack and seize it. Those are the moments when leadership is discovered and defined.

-You're afraid. So what? Everybody is afraid. Fear is the common ground of humanity. The question you must wrestle to the ground with is, Will I allow my fear to bind me to mediocrity? If so there is no reason for you to finish this book.

-Don't let how get in the way of pursuing what? Leaders pursue opportunities way before the means and the maps are available. Your industry's unsolved problems are the gateway to the future.

-Leaders don't hide from the truth. The pain of discovery is the first step on the path to change. If you are going to fear anything, fear not know the truth about what's happening around you. In the world of leadership, denial is analogous to receiving the last rites.

-What could be? What should be? Write it down. Hang it on a wall. Broadcast it.
