A leader has to be aware of his drive for leading. By knowing about the drive he know the directions and the options of wheel.
The range of a leader highly depends on the drive's intensity. The stronger the drive the more readiness for risk taking. People with an overdrive put their neck on the line, in one or the other way.
Many people have drives in different directions. Their life full of conflicts. On the other hand we have different desires and need drives in different directions. So the only option to overcome this dilemma is setting priorities and include the aspect of time.
