THE SOUND OF ENTHUSIASM

Don't just enthusiasm by how loudly somebody talks. Bill Walton's enthusiasm was bubbling over. On the other hand, if you looked at Lewis Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar), you'd think he had no enthusiasm at all. He was quiet, almost stoic.

Kareem was just as enthusiastic as Bill; he just didn't make as much noise. Noise it not necessarily enthusiasm. Sometimes it is; sometimes it isn't.

An effective leader knows the difference.

From "The Essential Wooden"
