Number ONE Habit of Successful Information Warfare Officer Leaders

  1. They lead.

When doing a job—any job—one must feel that he owns it, and act as though he will remain in the job forever. He must look after his work just as conscientiously, as though it were his own business and his own money. If he feels he is only a temporary custodian, or that the job is just a stepping stone to a higher position, his actions will not take into account the long-term interests of the organization. His lack of commitment to the present job will be perceived by those who work for him, and they, likewise, will tend not to care. Too many spend their entire working lives looking for their next job. When one feels he owns his present job and acts that way, he need have no concern about his next job. Admiral Hyman Rickover (1900-1986)

How are we defining "Successful" here?

LCDRLDO nails it.

When I had a division or department or command it was MINE. I owned it and treated it as if it was MINE.

I took into it some rules from my father:

Do your very best.
Never compare/contrast your best to your peers. Simply do your best.
