…Who gets weaker? The king or the teacher
It’s not about a salary it’s all about reality
Teachers teach and do the world good
kings just rule and most are never understood
If you were to rule or govern a certain industry
All inside this room right now would be in misery
No one would get along nor sing a song
’cause everyone’d be singing for the king, am I wrong?!…

Takeaway #188: Which is the more effective manager or CEO, one that brings out the most in his/her team or the one that is followed? Do you want yes-men leading you down your self-designed path of self-destruction or do you want a smooth running machine with sum of parts greater than the individual pistons? Teach your team, don’t rule your team.
Foot on the pedal – never ever false metal
Engine running hotter than a boiling kettle
My job’s ain’t a job – it’s a damn good time

Are you a 9 to 5 slave? Do you hold down the widget segment of the industry, and make parts for the sexier product? If you feel that way about your position or status, you need to rethink what you do or why you are doing it. This can’t be drudgery, it must be a love. No one or entity has true success without passion.
The reality is that it is impossible to convince others to buy your product or service without selling them on the enthusiasm that you have for it. Investors and executives gravitate to the positive momentum of those who are convinced of the love affair that they have found the elixir of life and corporate success. I hope you are sending out that message . . . because I bet you dollars-to-donuts that the market leader in your game is having a damn good time!
