The Bono of stapler selling

"In my new book THE LEADER WHO HAD NO TITLE: A MODERN FABLE ON REAL SUCCESS IN BUSINESS AND LIFE (in stores in late March), I distill everything I’ve learned about what it means to Lead Without a Title. Taxi drivers can lead. Teachers can lead. Farmers can lead. And once we all accept that call on our lives, the whole game will change. 'If everyone would only sweep their own doorstep, the whole world would be clean,' noted one of the greatest Leaders Without a Title, Mother Teresa. One of the core elements of the new book is the need for each of us to do our absolute best work – no matter where we are planted. You don’t have to be the CEO to make the commitment to becoming the best in the world at what you do. My encouragement is to become the Mick Jagger of The Mailroom, The Bono of Stapler Selling and The Warren Buffett of Bookkeeping. Wherever you find yourself, do your work like Picasso painted – and like Mozart composed. Few things make you happier than knowing you played at your peak."
