Leadership, in many ways, can be better grasped if we understand it in the form of building, not achieving. The leader who is creating an organization is building. You do not create a building one wall at a time; you create it one brick at a time. The effective leader is effective by virtue of the fact that he knows which brick goes in which place and at what time. Indeed, he must have the ability to envision the whole building while working at the level of a single brick. No matter how high up you are in an organization, the investment of your day is a matter of carefully selecting and placing the right bricks.
