You can't achieve anything without a clear sense of purpose: a personal commitment to giving your best and building community. Nelson Mandela had a clear purpose: to restore dignity to all. I don't think he ever woke up and said: "Well, dignity can wait; I'm tired, so I'm taking today off ... " Once he had set a goal, he never tired of working towards it. What makes people like him and Desmond Tutu so special is that they aren't in leadership for money or glory; they're there to take something forward. This is what we need - in government, in business, and even at a personal level.
