The shortest answer is doing
Technology is not an optional
Visionary leaders know that technology matters. You cannot live outside IT world, IT is everywhere, also if you don’t see it.
Keep yourself updated
No matter how much time you need, if you don’t want to be outdated, it’s mandatory.
Always try to be honest
Even if others are not, because their head is full of egoism, and the only goal of their life is money, despite of the people they are trampling. Carry on and look ahead.
Don’t sit down
Unless you are very, VERY tired, keep on running, the world won’t wait for you to relax! In case of emergency a coffee will help!
