On Leadership and Endurance

“…the leader who wants to make a difference had better make a public commitment to stay…

Observers of leadership have long noted that leaders often overestimate what can be accomplished in a single year, but underestimate what can be accomplished in a decade…

…Each year I (Mohler) do a serious, gut wrenching analysis of what we accomplished and experienced. Every one of these years has been eventful–some blazingly so–but I now have difficulty remembering what year a given event happened. Years blend into decades. To be honest, I never felt that a year was whole. On the other hand, the decades feel right. Years go by in a flash, but the decades linger.”

~Albert Mohler, “Conviction to Lead”, chapter 23, pages 192 and 195
