When you are confident in your leadership, you are big enough to “take the hits” and keep on moving. There is no need to defend yourself or attempt to take anyone else down.
That is the way I was taught. I was lucky: I was taught by the best. Either that or I was smart enough to steal from the best.
I guess when you only plan to stay only a short time, you don’t really care what you do to the place.
JFK – taking responsibility for the Bay of Pigs invasion.
Can you imagine any politician in any party today taking responsibility for anything other than taking credit for good things done by other people?
It could be a nice place. Too bad the current residents are trashing the place.
While I was still going into work, I noticed that the cleaning crews were doing extra duty wiping down door handles and handrails.
Our doors are designed to be pushed open without using the handle so that works one-way. Then I noticed that they started propping doors open. It’s probably against fire code, but I guess the infection is a greater hazard.
One of our local restaurants has a “foot bar” on the doors to the rest rooms. You can pull the door open with your foot. This might become a popular design.
I never got into basketball. It’s a sport played by tall millionaires in shorts running back and forth doing a thing called “dribbling.”
“I reject your reality and substitute my own.”
I buy the stuff by the case.
As I approached retirement age (notice how I phrased that. I did not say “As I approached retirement.”) I changed my portfolio to extremely conservative. So I am down about 1/4 as much as some of my coworkers.
The stock market plunge is a good thing for me. I will reverse my conservatism when things settle out.
