What is leadership?

"What was leadership, after all, but the blind choice of one route over another and the confident pretense that the decision was based on reason" (taken from "Pompeii" by Robert Harris).

I don't want to spoil this great motto so I will limit myself to just couple of words. I think that every great manager and leading developer should know the power of motto above not from this excellent book but from his/her own experience.

We will never know whether the choice was right or wrong until we make it. My humble advice is that you have to take the risk - nobody will (or at least should :) punish you if you make the wrong decision because the worst choice is the lack of choice.
