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.

This from fellow blogger George Ambler
Busyness kills leadership as:
Busyness is fake work, it has the appearance of work, but doesn’t deliver results.
Busyness gets you doing unnecessary work. When unnecessary work is done time is wasted.
Busyness is seductive as it makes you feel important.
Busyness traps you into using your time and energy for doing good work rather than investing it in your great work.
Busyness robs you of the capacity needed to reflect and to think deeply about important issues and decisions of the day.
Busyness keeps you reacting rather than responding and initiating.
