All the great leaders in history, Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and Nelson Mandela, have one thing in common; a consistency of purpose. The greater the consistency of purpose (and the longer it is exhibited), the greater the leadership return.

This thing can be something lofty like "world peace" or something more normal like "reducing the amount of plastic bags used in my household."
