“I like to go full bore into something.  If you have a backup plan, then you’ve already admitted defeat.” ~ Henry Cavill

Long-time readers of my comic know that I am NOT endorsing Mr. Cavill’s philosophy.  Any of you that takes a huge risk without thinking about what will happen if you’re wrong, and what your plan B is have had an unpleasant conversation with me (if they’re still working here).  Our job as leaders is to think through all of the consequences, or show that we tried to think of everything (because nobody’s perfect) when an issue occurs.

That said, there is such a thing as OVER-Thinking consequences to the point of paralysis.  I call it navel-gazing, and my wife calls it picking lint from your belly button (Google it if you haven’t heard the terms).  Ready-aim-fire is the correct sequence, unlike Ready-fire-Aim or Ready-aim-aim-aim-aim-aim…  Eventually, you need to move, and then adjust course if your plan needs a little shifting.

Speaking of backup plans…
