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 (even at 30 years). The uniform is in the closet but, he still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. But, he just doesn't try hard enough. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time.

MCPON "zeroing in on excellence"
At our Leadership Mess Symposium in September, I mentioned that my refrain as MCPON will be Zeroing in on Excellence. For me, that is about solidifying our lines of operation with three fundamental focus areas:
Good Order and Discipline
Controlling What We Own
Zeroing in on Excellence is a universal theme we can all apply
in our respective positions. It does not distract from or add to
existing individual roles and responsibilities – it provides a sturdy
framework around which we can build sound, durable readiness. Each of
you has your own professional obligations, and your sustained success in
meeting them is a large reason our Navy is the world’s preeminent
maritime force. I simply ask that as you carry out the business of
leading Sailors, you do so not only with energy aimed at accomplishing a
stand-alone task but also at building an environment where our entire
organization gets stronger.
