“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” – Winston Churchill

Be clear with your word and speak it to those who you lead. Some will come with you, some will move away from you, but no one gets to stay where they are in your organization and just be mad. Know what you stand for, stand up strong and speak its word, and use the discomfort of misalignment to help those people off the bus who need to.


Hey, there – Main Man Ice Cube gets his #345 bell rung. HIM!


Did you know that Mudpants has a podcast? Right? I didn’t know either but Teacher’s Pet did. I just thought he had one of the greatest of all F3 names.
