He Came To Bring A Sword!

Basic Leadership-Success Principles


1). Fire anyone who uses the word "can't" more than once in a conversation with you, or whose daily lexicon is filled with excuses or complaints.

2). Look for opportunity where others see despair...you will likely find it.

3). Nothing is impossible. Say that ten times every morning. Fire anyone that disagrees.

4). Surround yourself with tigers who make stuff happen rather than the complaining sloths who watch stuff happen.

5). Place yourself above the daily groanings and whimperings of common men.

6). Choose your objective and move towards it aggressively and ruthlessly...others will follow.

7). Know when to quit. If after examining the battlefield, one door is too difficult, abandon it and find an easier door. But don't do that more than once a year.

8). Business is war and as soon as money is involved, you will realize that your "colleagues" are not your friends.  And similarly, war is business.  Only go to war to fill your pockets with the enemy's gold.

9). Secrecy of mission is essential. See #8 above.

10). It is not just about winning, because it is always about winning. How you win is up to you to define, but if you are not interested in that, stay home.
