“You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end—which you can never afford to lose—with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”
-Admiral James Stockdale
Look before you leap. He who hesitates is lost.
80% plan violently executed…where is your attention to detail?
Move with a sense of urgency! Patience is a virtue.
From Gandhi to Gates, and JFK to Jobs, leaders have been balancing bringing the right level of urgency, enthusiasm, mentor, manager, teacher, or even tyrant, to what their team, situation and mission need.
But…as much as we study the bios of the best, we have to remind ourselves, as I was reminded yesterday by Jan Tuchman (podcast dropping in May), we are in this role for a reason. Don’t overthink it. Trust your gut. Whatever your role and whatever the situation, we need you to lead!
BJ Kraemer, President
