It is not enough for a leader to know the right thing.  He must be able to do the right thing.  The … leader without the judgment or perception to make the right decisions fails for lack of vision.  The one who knows the right thing but cannot achieve it fails because he is ineffectual.  The great leader needs  the capacity to achieve.

Power is about the ability to influence things
