With Rifle and Bibliography: General Mattis on Professional Reading

With Rifle and Bibliography: General Mattis on Professional Reading | Business Transformation | Scoop.it

Thanks to my reading, I have never been caught flat-footed by any situation, never at a loss for how any problem has been addressed (successfully or unsuccessfully) before. It doesn’t give me all the answers, but it lights what is often a dark path ahead.

Karl Wabst's insight:

Why read? Learn from those that came before or learn from experience. When Generals learn from experience people who might not otherwise die.

 

OK, you're not leading people into battle. Sometimes it's the company that dies, profits that fall, investors and consumers who lose faith and leave.

 

Don’t keep up, don’t learn, and don’t lead. The person who takes your job probably wants it more.
