We must disenthrall ourselves - Abraham Lincoln


"
We can succeed only by concert. 
It is not "can any of us imagine better?" but, "can we all do better?" 
The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. 
The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise -- with the occasion. 
As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. 
We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country."

Abraham Lincolnaddress to Congress, December 1862


Abraham Lincoln, 1863
I couldn't find a better quote for my new team. 
These words are from one of Abraham Lincoln's famous statements. 

Leadership is hard, the task ahead of us is humongous, succeeding in such hazy times is even more arduous... 

The key word for all of us (executives, managers, individual contributors etc...) is to DISENTHRALL because success is a recipe that combines genius,  luck, hard work and open mind.
