- 20 people are doers.
- With a leader.
- 80 are hanging around watching, experimenting, consuming, or complaining.
- When the 20 expand to 40, chances are there’s 200 now in the organization (or will be).
- The 20 tend to get frustrated with the 80 for not doing anything and at times will tell them. (They should avoid that.)
- The 80 will ride the coattails of the 20 and feel like they did it and even take credit for it.
- This sometimes frustrates the 20. They should not be frustrated. They should just do.
- Great leaders pour vision into the 20 while casting the net out to the 100.
- Frustrated leaders spend a lot of time trying to get the 80 be part of the 20.
- Of the 80, some will become doers as the organization grows.
- The doers that simply do will some day realize there are people following them.
- Some of the 80 will become part of the 20 with a simple personal invite.
- A leader will be turned down 4 times for every yes. This does not bother great leaders. It frustrates others.
- Frustrated leaders have the opportunity to be great leaders.
I want to be a great leader.
