Marcus Buckingham in his book, The One Thing You Need to Know, defined great leaders as being preoccupied with the future.
He said they have a vivid image of what the future could be and friction between what is and what could be burns them up and propels them forward.
They are restless for change, impatient for progress and deeply dissatisfied with the status quo.
They not only believe in a better future but also believe they are the one to make that future come true.
There is much optimism from Labor supporters that Albanese is this person.
I hope it is proved to be well-founded.
