powell doctrine

A new mantra I'm testing out this week is the so-called Powell Doctrine whereby you only do something if you can do it with overwhelming force. It's not complicated. Elementary actually. If you're going to commit to something make sure you use all your resources to ensure success. For me it's part of an ongoing effort to balance my ADD multi-tasking with my ability to really focus on a single task to "overwhelming" completion.

Just don't adopt the Bush doctrine next. I sent a letter to the White House and received a "Welcome to America" announcement for Lauren. Some day I'll explain to her why I didn't vote for Dubya.

Welcome to America. Nice. Well, at least it wasn't from George Allen.

Powell. Amazing how quickly you can utterly decimate your credibility and reputation. The Enron of politics.
