Learn to lead yourself and others to the best possible future . Who wants to enter into a preferred future alone? “A moral future is an inclusive one,” writes Smith. “I want my future to be experienced in the company of many people I’ve inspired to their own preferred futures.” Leadership is about accepting responsibility for others. We are obligated to more than just ourselves. We are obligated to countless people we have direct or indirect, immediate or future influence over. If we are moral people, we cannot not be leaders.
