The Fall 2010 issue of Leadership Journal is now out. It highlights the topic of ambition and fittingly includes an interview with my friend Dave Harvey, titled “The Glory Drive” (pages 20-24).
“Without ambition, nothing happens,” Dave says. “Churches don’t get planted, the lost aren't reached, the church has no impact. And beyond the church, business don’t start, social problems go unaddressed and exploration doesn’t happen. Without ambition people become lazy. If you undermine ambition, you rob people of their desire and will to do something great with their lives” (21).
If you see the magazine, check out the interview. And if you don’t own Dave’s book Rescuing Ambition, here's my recommendation--go buy a copy right away.
