Sometimes You Should Retreat Before Pressing On

Before modern military tactics were developed, it was common for the General to move to an elevated position to observe the battle. Typically, soldiers fighting face-to-face with their enemy were so focused on survival that they lacked perspective on whether they were winning or losing until the battle was over. The General’s view, however, prompted adjustments to increase the likelihood of victory.

Excellence is the quality of being outstanding or extremely good.

Authority is the right to give orders and make decisions. Or, as marketing contemporary Seth Godin says, “Authority comes from trying. From striving to get there, by refusing to compromise on the things that matter.”

We could not agree more.
