I have a friend who is a very successful entrepreneur. He constantly reminds me of the following:
“For every 1000 sheep, there is one shepherd. Be the shepherd.”
If you are in a leadership role, from lead teacher to superintendent, then everyday you have to step up and lead. If you abdicate that responsibility, your staff won’t know it until it is too late and they are in eminent danger.
If the flock wanders off, you don’t blame the sheep, you get a new shepherd.
Think. Work. Achieve.
