In a world where we obsessively measure results, we sometimes forget that just trying hard to do things that are difficult is important. Effort matters because other people see it and begin to change what they think is possible.
Effort matters because while they are watching us struggle and achieve, they believe that they too might be capable of more. It also matters because long before there are any results to measure, there is effort. As leaders, people watch our journey, observing how much effort we put into inspiring others and continuously improving. The effort creates the possibility of change.
