Alan’s Monday Morning Memo – 5/28/12

May 28, 2012—Issue #140

This week’s focus point: Let’s take a moment to thank all the men and women who have served and are serving in the defense of our nation, sacrificing to protect us all. And with special thoughts, let us honor those who Lincoln so eloquently referred to as “giving their last full measure of devotion.” Rest in peace.

Monday Morning Perspective: Men who take up arms against one another in public war do not cease on this account to be moral beings, responsible to one another and to God. — U.S. Army Regulations, 1863

I remember a meeting with a boutique consulting firm that had fallen on hard times. The debate was whether or not to sell their magnificent conference table. “Where would clients sit?” asked one partner. “We have no clients,” stated the advocate of selling. You can’t cut your way to renewal or success. Top line growth is the key to bottom line achievement, for you and for your clients. Today is the time to invest in the future. Once you cut muscle, you’re powerless.

  1. As a retired sergeant, I think that quote should be read monthly at every military morning formation. Soldiers have an obligation to win battles, but soldiers are made up of men and women. And men and women have the higher obligation of affording basic human dignity, even to an enemy.

    Our younger soldiers sometimes need to be reminded of that – just as I had to be reminded of it when I was younger.
