I still see him/them out of the corner my eye or even hear them in the next room. I try not to make too much noise so as not to startle them. Then, I always remember. They're not there. Five minutes later, I'll do it again.
“As a leader... I have always endeavored to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a con-sensus of what I heard in the discussion. I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.”~ Nelson Mandela
