Nugget of Knowledge 

"Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy."  -Norman Schwarzkopf

Strategy can be learned, or you can seek the counsel of others. Your character has been developed over years of thoughts, actions, and habits. Your character shines through when no one is looking, and when times are stressful it will be put to the test. Will yours pass the test? -Amy
