Leaders are self starters but they don’t know that.
Leaders are ahead of the crowd but they don’t know that either.
The reason leaders are self starters is because they are the only one in their camp.
When an idea arrives to fix, to improve or to create they are not usually inspired to say “Hey guys, let’s do this”.
Leaders generally have only one follower, one person on their team; the Leader, the Follower, the Self-Starter – they are one.
They immediately grab a computer, a paint brush, a chisel with which to create or to discover. The result is then offered to the community
If the contribution shows promise to less creative minds, comes soon a TED talk or a you tube video or the tap on the shoulder from a watchful entrepreneurial eye whispering a suggestion of possible profits.

To the best of my knowledge, about 8% of the 100,000 LinkedIn viewers who have attempted to solve the following problem this week, have done so.
Those who were successful understood that this was not a math problem. When viewed as simply a problem of logic one needs only to completely understand the basic premise of the first syllogism, test it against the syllogism of groups of twos until the match becomes apparent and then replicate their success with the groups of threes.
With most problems in our daily lives for which solutions are not apparent, many of us tend to seek others for solutions. Among those seeking such help there will be some whose personal integrity will compel them to seek only the path rather than the destiny.
And among those who believed they had solved the problem unaided, all by themselves will be those who will guard their secret, perhaps because the exclusivity of belonging to a distinctively small group of scholars who realize that the importance of such a membership will be diluted by revealing their secret. Not that any of that is important.
