— A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.” Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —
HALF-MEASURES ARE VAIN! This was an axiom of Winston Churchill. Rudy seemed to live by that axiom too. Come to think of it, I never have seen a true leader without this philosophy. But I have seen overly analytical hunters never get a shot off. And I have seen elaborate plans that never amounted to a hill of beans. I’ve learned to go with true leaders. They decide and then act decisively.
Hey leader, I have some questions for you: Which is better tenacity or tenuousness? What good is expertise without execution? Is hope a strategy? Have you observed paralysis by analysis? Does determination ever make a weak plan look strong? Is he who looks back fit for the plow? Likely you agree with Sir Winston: Half-measures are vain.
