If you hadn't noticed, mountain top experiences never start on top of the mountain. It starts from a state of humility. There is a whole progression of phases that happen that makes those experiences the Great of All Time. If those phases are what create GOAT experiences, then maybe there are some parallel aspects to what makes GOAT leaders. Let...
