Suffering Through Leadership

Five miles from the nearest paved road, we set out in the pitch dark…

If you just came from jeff, you saw the insight on suffering. Saturday night, we were scared. On a weekend Cub Scout camping trip, we went for an hour hike, in the (4,700-acre Forever) Florida wilderness.

Thirty minutes out. Thirty minutes back. In the pitch dark. No flash lights. No moon. Just dark.

Bravery isn’t absence of fear, nor the mastery (as some suggest) of fear. Bravery is the habit of confronting your fears – the essence of a great leader, anywhere.
