Fit no stereotypes. Don't chase the latest management fads. The situation dictates which approach best accomplishes the team's mission.


Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard.


Don't bother people for help without first trying to solve the problem yourself.

Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand.


When you decide to get involved in a military operation in a place like Syria, you've got to be prepared, as we learned from Iraq and Afghanistan, to become the government, and I'm not sure any country, either the United States or I don't hear of anyone else, who's willing to take on that responsibility.


There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.


Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.
