Pioneers, arrows and gold

Pioneers are just as likely to come back with arrows in their backs as they are with bags of gold. What’s more, those arrows are just as likely to come from your own expedition.

It’s hard to get out front. It’s fraught with dangers but people keep trying because we love testing ourselves and because the rewards are potentially huge.

You’ll have a target on your back, people gunning for you and challenging your thoughts, but that’s the price of leadership.
