Brilliant or bonkers?

‘Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.’ – William Shakespeare

“Loneliness is the penalty of leadership, but the man who has to make the decisions is assisted greatly if he feels that there is no uncertainty in the minds of those who follow him, and that his orders will be carried out confidently and in expectation of success.”

– Ernest Shackelton
