Always view leadership as a marathon. Too many leaders get caught up in the day-to-day stuff, which is important. But the most important action is to stick with it. No decision is the most important decision, but it is a collection of correct directional decisions that will get you to the end of the race.
Always view leadership with caution. In a day and age when everybody wants to be the first one to get their views out in front, always remember that your words and thoughts carry a lot of weight and will affect people, either positively or negatively, all of the time.
Always view leadership as giving back. I have no doubt that many men and women have contributed to your leadership journey. They've spent time with you, invested hours, dinners, and cups of coffee with you. You owe it to them to give to the next generation.
