I was in Barnes and Noble tonight, and I picked up a book. I ended up buying another book – Clever – I forget the authors, but this first book that I was looking at had a line in it. I think it was about leadership, but the line was “Walk the walk.” Then after that line, the author went on to suggest an example.
His example was Al Gore – who walks around talking and preaching about global warming. He has created an impressive powerpoint program that has won him a Nobel Prize. Did you know that there is a training that you can to to learn how to give his powerpoint presentation – and you pay for it. His presentation was presented tonight (no matter what night you read this) all over the country.
That wasn’t the point though-actually, that’s what I know about him and his powerpoint. Back to the “walk the walk” line. That author shared that Al Gore along with his powerpoint presentation and Nobel Prize lives in a 10,000 square foot house that’s an energy guzzling home. Al Gore does not “walk the walk.”
No one is perfect, but he’s making a ton of money off of it.
