Serious is urgent
And it has to do with change.
Leadership is about progress.
There’s no such thing as casual leadership; there’s no such thing as leadership without heart.
Fully-committed, passionate leadership is about growth and progress — all of which is about change.
Kenneth Koch, the author of the poem quoted above, understands the importance of change.
That nothing serious happens without urgency — without a need, and a need for right now.
And the only way we can signify something serious is by how much we’re willing to change.
