I love this devotion from John Maxwell that I think is applicable to individuals, as well as organizations.
“Too many people simply fall into a comfortable niche in life and stay there rather than pursue goals of significance. Leaders can’t afford to do that. Leaders must ask themselves whether they want survival, success, or significance. The best leaders desire significance and expend their time and energy in pursuit of their dreams.”
John Maxwell – “A Leader’s Heart” pg. 46
