Today's Maxwell Quote

From A More Excellent Way (1967), 108:
Lazy leaders will find it easy to rationalize too many times the possible gains in group effectiveness to be achieved by deliberate involvement.

The assertion that directive action by the leader saves time is not always borne out by the facts, especially when continuing compliance in spiritual things almost always involves building a commitment which will stand up under the pressure of time and circumstance.
