For all my fellow idealist Shipmates out there

"Go back to the time when you were the idealist, when you stood for something, when your dreams were clearer than the reality that told you that you were crazy. Go back to that. Be that person again…the one we used to love."  The one your Sailors loved.

Simon Sinek answers Commander Sean Heritage's question in a video interview with Scott Dinsmore at the 24:00 mark in this video HERE.  Commander Heritage is the Commanding Officer of Navy Information Operations Command Pensacola, Florida.  NIOC Pensacola is Fleet Cyber Command/TENTH Fleet's PURPLE COW.

I wonder how many people out there know what a compliment it is to be referred to as a "Purple Cow"? We in NIOC-P appreciate it...Moo! For those who don't know, please consider reading a Seth Godin book (or two) and watching a few of his TED Talks...inspiring!

I never saw a purple cow.
I never hope to see one.
But I can tell you anyhow
I'd rather see than be one.

In this context, purple cows are: remarkable (as in different, special, or unique) and useful (as in valuable, helpful, and interesting).
