And yet, many leaders I have met exude certainty. And for some of them, it works. They sell me on their vision and their tactics and I gladly serve that higher purpose. The true test for me is when they screw up, which will happen to everyone. This will be the mark of a true leader. Will they respond to data and change course? Or will they produce a Friends spinoff feauturing Joey?
That’s why I can’t stand President Trump. He is not one to show uncertainty. He has never admitted to being wrong. He never changes course. I have no faith in his ability to learn and adapt. From the very beginning, I would not follow this guy to an open bourbon bar.
Sometimes I envy the simplicity of knowing exactly what you had to do to succeed in your day, and becoming really adept at it. So here’s to you, I hope I one day feel that way about my work. My day job, not the cartooning thing. I will never know WTF I’m doing here. And I’m ok with that.
