Yesterday, we spoke about recharging your batteries with your “choir” – those who share your views and cheer you on.

Your detractors? The ones who’ll just never see life as you do, no matter what? Forget about them. Don’t waste your energy.

But here’s the group that matters the most for anyone out to change the world for the better: the vast undecided majority.

Some of them don’t know.

Others have heard, but aren’t quite convinced – or maybe they themselves are on board with where you’re headed, but they’re afraid to speak up and bring their organizations; maybe they’re afraid, or they feel they need permission.

Yes, even leaders feel the need for permission sometimes. As in, “You mean, if I do the right thing, and lead my company with values instead of this-quarter stock price (for instance), I’ll actually help my company to thrive in the long term?”

To make significant change, this is who we have to spend most of our time with.

So let’s go get ’em!
