Another point in favor of curation over origination is that is it generally less time consuming. You can be a real player in the curation area and still have enough time to spend on client work and other tasks.

Leaders Who Can’t Forgive

Leaders Who Can’t Forgive | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Leading others means dealing with a maelstrom of relationships implying an enormous amount of emotional management.

People who cannot forgive get stuck into a downward spiral of negativity, taking everyone around them with them.
