Leadership carries a price-tag: When the first bullet is fired, you have to be willing to face it before putting others in the line.
Also, you never get to say — “It was not my fault.”
Whether you are an army general, a captain of a ship, a CEO, or the head of a government — it is always your fault.
You get to have a fancy office, big perks, and all the glory – but it does not come free.
The price of complete power is complete responsibility. You either pick both or none. Leadership is not a free ride.
