4 ways to avoid the gradual slackening that follows triumph:
1. Bear with imperfect people. A master can find a good use for everything.
2. Be willing to take risks. Don’t get stuck in the status quo.
3. Be independent. One of the best nonprofit leadership tips I ever received was, “Don’t determine what you do by what others do.”
4. Do your duty. Too many “leaders” strive for personal advantage, rather than doing the right thing. – Shar McBee
