Too often new ideas are studied and analyzed until they are suffocated.
It is the responsibility of leadership to provide opportunity, and the responsibility of individuals to contribute.
In examining the potential of individuals, we must focus on their strengths and not just their mistakes. We cannot be limited by what they may have spilled in the kitchen.

It is not always what we know or analyzed before we make a decision that makes it a great decision. It is what we do after we make the decision to implement and execute it that makes it a good decision.
