“If you haven't read hundreds of books, you are functionally illiterate, and you will be incompetent, because your personal experiences alone aren't broad enough to sustain you.”
Jim Mattis, Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead

“You don’t always control your circumstances, but you can always control your response.”
Jim Mattis, Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead

“The details you don’t give in your orders are as important as the ones you do. With all hands aligned to your goals, their cunning and initiative unleashed, you need only transparent sharing of information (What do I know? Who needs to know? Have I told them?) to orchestrate, as opposed to “control” or “synchronize,” a coordinated team.”
Jim Mattis, Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead
