We climbed through the rain leaving Los Angeles. It was bumpy.
But we climbed fast and then we were above the rain and the wind. We saw blue sky ahead of us as we pointed the plane towards Denver (the pilots did, at least).
Leadership and entrepreneurship are climbs. We have to get up above the minutiae, the drivel, the drama, and the tedium. It’s valuable to be amid that, but the higher path for the leader is to get everyone on a smoother path.
Up above the frustration, you can go fast. The journey is more clearly marked. Don't get bogged down in someone else’s expectations or with someone else’s agenda for you.
Your job is to climb.
