Two Kinds of Leaders

It’s about where they build their fires.

There’s leader A and leader B.

Leader A leaves his cabin, lights a fire in the fire pit, and returns inside — sitting close to the door to feel the heat.

Leader B leaves his cabin, grabs some logs, and returns inside — lighting a fire in the indoor fireplace.

Soon the weather turns and it begins to rain.

Just as leader A is beginning to feel the warmth, his fire goes out. He is cold and finds it hard to make it through the night.

The rain hits the tin roof of leader B’s cabin. He enjoys the sound and finds it easy to fall asleep as he is kept warm by his unaffected fire.

The leader who builds their fire outside, where the storm can extinguish it, will always be worried about the rain. They won’t survive for long.
