“Patience and tenacity of purpose are worth more than twice their weight of cleverness.”
~Thomas H. Huxley
I often encounter clever people who are able to devise amazing ways to resolve seemingly insurmountable challenges, and yet who lack the confidence and tenacity to put their ideas into place and push them to success. Similarly, there are those who are unable to find these clever solutions on their own, but when they understand the purpose and vision of those who can they are unstoppable. The effective leader therefore, is the one who puts together teams of complementary talents: clever problem solvers and patient and tenacious doers.
