Colin Powell’s Lesson for the Officer Corps …

Posted on December 2, 2016. Filed under: American Thinkers, Guide Posts, Uncategorized |

Colin Powell is a truly Great Man who because of loyalty to his Boss, President George W Bush, compromised himself – so very tragically. Here are his maxims

Check small things – Share credit – Remain calm – Be kind.

It ain’t as bad as you think – Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier – Get mad, then get over it.

It can be done  – Be careful what you choose. You may get it.

Have vision –  Don’t take counsel of your fears or naysayers.

Don’t let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision.

Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.
