Key lessons:

  1. Remember the importance of nurturing your first few followers as equals
  2. Make everything clearly about the movement — not about you
  3. Be public
  4. Be easy to follow
  5. And the Biggest lesson: LEADERSHIP IS OVERGLORIFIED: THERE’S NO MOVEMENT WITHOUT A FIRST FOLLOWER

Yes, it started with the leader, but you saw what really happened. It was the first follower that transformed a Lone Nut into a leader: THERE’S NO MOVEMENT WITHOUT A FIRST FOLLOWER.

See, we’re told we all need to be leaders–but that would be ineffective. The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show others how to follow.

When you find a Lone Nut doing something great–have the guts to be the first person to stand up–and join in.
