Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain (really just a high performing 2nd Class Petty Officer) who hung up his uniform a bit too early. He still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community".

Spending a lifetime using leadership tools
"As the youth progresses onward to mature manhood, he reaps aharvest from experience, he gleans much knowledge from his studies, he learns concisely what the laws of the seaman require, and the rules of the art of war demand.... But who is there to tell himthat toward the end of your career you cannot pick up new tools anduse them with the dexterity of the expert unless you have spent alifetime with them, tested the temper of their steel, and made thema part of your life's equipment."
