it's probably too late. but, i'm supposed to pretend like i want to be hear and try really hard to look happy. i'm not very good at it, so i'll settle for "okay."
“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
