  1. I’m not sure it is courage to move an idea forward that leads to success. There are many examples where people have been courageously led in the wrong direction. Clarity is much more valuable than courage. Courage provides a surge of energy to push forward and act right away. Clarity requires that we assess needs, limitations, and opportunities in order to understand how and when to respond effectively. Courage serves in the short term. Clarity lasts and expands over the long run.

    Courage tends to be an individual trait. Clarity grows with inclusion and connection. Courage runs past or wades through obstruction. Clarity seeks to understand and adapt to obstacles so they don’t interfere in the future. Courage thrives on will, which can wear down over time. Clarity requires balance, which allows us to be authentic – something that never wears out. Courage tends to narrow focus. Clarity asks questions, seeks understanding, and provides the awareness and flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances. Courage drives. Clarity sees.
