“It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.” Nelson Mandela
I get to work with and have close relationships with many of the best leaders in business. I  am becoming aware that many of the most driven, highest-performing and best in class businesses are led by people who never take credit for what they accomplish. I also have observed they don’t take the time to celebrate amazing feats. All success does is make them hungrier for bigger and better mountains to climb.  Many of you who read this are probably going to send me a note saying, “were you thinking of me when you wrote this,” and my honest answer is yes, it is all of you!
As my wife has so wisely advised me through the years:  “Today, just take time to smell the roses, enjoy those little things about your life, your family, spouse, friends, job. Forget about the thorns – the pains and problems they cause you – and enjoy life.” Bernard Kelvin Clive, Your Dreams Will Not Die
