Accepting Realities of Reinventions

“Look, you get older. Passion is a young man’s game. Young people can be passionate. Older people gotta be more wise. I mean, you’re around a while, you leave certain things to the young and you don’t try to act like you’re young. You could really hurt yourself.”
Bob Dylan, February 2015, 73 years young Getting Older

It always drives me nuts when I hear people dismiss an artist of Bob Dylan’s magnitude with, “Sure, Dylan is a great poet, but I can’t stand his voice.” My response to this has always been to shrug and say, “Yeah, OK, but which voice?” For more than half a century the man has seemed to define artistic reinvention.  Reinventing The Wheels

The ‘Red Bull’ of management thinkers, Tom Peters, said that leaders don’t create more followers, they create more leaders. And he’s right. 
Leaders who simply ‘talk the talk’ create followers, while true leaders create more leaders by leading by example. Sometimes that might mean providing vision and inspiration in a traditional way, but more often than not it means getting involved and showing how things should be done Competency and Charism
