Fancy plans, complex systems, robust programs, high-sounding projects are nothing other than stuff.
Success can never be built around these things, simply because they are things.
Success only comes as result of the effort of people. When people, especially teams of people, coalesce around a powerful idea/pursuit, then and only then do those things mentioned above make a difference.
A leader’s time is far better spent on finding, recruiting, co-opting, and developing people than it is spent on all those other things.
You can’t lead stuff; you can only lead people.
