When you are asked to do something,
determine if you can do it.
If you cannot, then decline as soon as possible,
the way in a restaurant you would send back the wrong order.
If you don’t send it back immediately, you will have to pay for it.
There is a reason people flock to certain individuals.
They are warm, nurturing, and magnanimous.
They are generous with their time, money, and compliments.
If you try to lead people only by stressing rules and principles,
they will leave you, one by one.
A good leader knows this, and thus tries to cultivate virtue.
