The number one reason being a leader is like being a parent

true that caption...(note: this is not my photo)

The number one reason being a leader is like being a parent. Drumroll please…. When you are not a parent, you think you are the most important person in the world.

When (or if) you become a parent, you gain an amazing insight… you are no longer the most important person in the universe. A servant leader discovers this the moment other people’s careers are more important than their own.

PS. If you are destined for any reason to never be a parent, the revelation in this post may never become profound. Dismissing it doesn’t make it false, it simple discards one of life’s brilliant phenomenon.
