To advance in their careers, good leaders ask to do more. The desire for the next role and a deserved promotion to a more senior leadership position seems to be a natural motivation in organizational life. In an ideal world, the best people and leaders rise and take on more responsibility and ownership for the decisions critical to organizational success.
This certainly challenges those wishing to leave a "legacy" at work. Perhaps we would be better at doing the work and moving on to the next task at hand. Regarding a lasting impact, that is where interactions with our family and community may be important.
Thanks for your time.
