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". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time. 2015 is 80th Anniversary of the Naval Security Group.

Always bring something to the table that will make you more welcome.
Critics are good. They are the ones who show they care about what you are doing. Their criticism is affirmation that you are doing SOMETHING.
Make sure the artifacts of your life show purpose and meaning.
Benjamin Zander's rule #6 - "Don't take yourself so damn seriously".
Command is the zenith of military achievement.
Be worthy to lead. Then, lead a life of consequence.
Think as a man of action; act as a man of thought.
