I like to think of time like this is like “leading a group of friends crossing a river that you never cross before, it’s cold, muddy, you can’t see the path and some of your friends are scared, and you might be scared too!”. Tan believe in time like this, leaders must find the way to self-inspired by focusing on the direction they want to go, find way to over-come their own fear by taking one small step at a time toward the direction they want to go and before you know it, you’ve travelled far and will feel inspired by the steps you have taken during challenging time. Then and only then, you team will be inspired.
Tan believes if everyday we just take a small step towards the right direction, and without looking back, we will travel far.
