What if you are stuck somewhere by yourself, though. That's rough, but you can still use some leadership skills on yourself. When Steven Callahan was adrift in a lifeboat on the Atlantic Ocean for 76 days in 1981, part of his mind became a personality called the "Captain". This Captain character gave orders to the "Crewman" personality and enforced all those orders. Callahan kept a detailed log of his ordeal at sea and he even records an argument between the Captain and the Crewman over the 16 ounce water ration. That's right, he was living on only one pint a day before he was finally rescued! Think about that next time you're sucking down a Super Big Gulp.
