The leader makes many decisions, but he needs to have an awareness of the categorical difference between an ordinary decision and a compass-setting decision. Compass-setting decisions align the leader with true north. The thing to remember is that a directional setting (a truth north decision) points the leader in only one direction while eliminating from the leader’s path every other point on the compass. We focus on where the leader is going, but it is more telling when you focus on where the leader is not going. Throughout the day, the leader makes decisions. Never make the mistake of confusing a compass-setting decision with an ordinary decision.
