Battle Call

When facing a compelling goal; it is nearly impossible to remain discouraged. The theme of the movie TROY speaks to 1) the battles we fight, 2) why we fight them, and 3) for whom we fight. A fantastic movie - an overwhelmingly powerful theme. Not to mention, that the opening encounter between Pitt and his gigantic enemy was thrilling, swift, and decisive. Professional battles are real and your participation in such must be the same. No time for games. C. Vincent this one is for you!

Allow me to draft through the mind of a military officer. Military strategy deals with the planning and conduct of campaigns, the movement and disposition of forces, and the deception of the enemy. The father of modern strategic study, Carl von Clausewitz, defined military strategy as "the employment of battles to gain the end of war." Companies and the soldiers they employ are constantly engaged in some activity that demands their waging a campaign.

Professional campaigns exist around the formula (EBITDA), promotions, diversity initiatives, and growing an mlm team just to name a few. For many there is ALWAYS a reason why the battle can’t be won. To them I say “all the excuses in the world won’t allow you to skip tomorrow.” For those willing to fight, do not scale back your assault. Obligate yourself to a plan that seizes a thrilling, swift, and decisive victory. It’s Monday - prepare for battle – let’s keep it moving!
