I tweeted this tonight…
Surround yourself with those who haven’t drank your koolaid.
I’m sure your koolaid is tasty. I’m sure your koolaid is the special sauce.
But when everyone around you is drunk on your junk then you turn into an accidental dictator.
Accidental because those who are blitzed with your ritz don’t know it.
They laugh at your jokes when they are not funny.
They will choose your idea just because you are in the room.
They will soon stop thinking and just start doing.
Accidental because you may not even want it, but you are being shielded from reality.
So if you are a leader, and you all are…
Just make sure someone else is bartending at the party that is your life.
It’s better that way…
