Are You a Leader During Times of Duress? by Joel Peterson

  • Leaders confront reality head-on. (“Thinking will not overcome fear—but action will.” –W. Clement Stone)
  • Leaders don’t need to be asked. (The motto of the U.S. Army Rangers is Sua Sponte—“of their own accord”—meaning they chose their duty.)
  • Leaders do themselves what they ask of others. (“You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.” –Oliver Goldsmith)
  • Leaders are prepared. (Navy SEALs “earn their Trident every day,” according to their code.)
  • Leaders are all about the mission. (“Never mind your happiness; do your duty.” – Peter Drucker)
