Leadership is doing what you love

Have you ever begun a project or a journey simply because it excited and inspired you, and then when people started following you, you changed the work or the destination because you thought you had to create something that was “worthy” of being followed?

When you’re doing something you love, and people start following you, they do so because they see where you’re going and they want to go there too. When you start getting attention for doing what you love: keep doing what you love! That’s leadership: doing what you love, no matter how much success or attention you get for it.

(Bonus: leadership is also doing what you love even when NOBODY is following you)
