When To Give Up
When to act and when to wait....
If at first....
Give up on the small things, if you must.
Hold fast on the big things, unless there is a path to valid compromise.
Will every battle end in victory?
Not likely. Slip away and live to fight another day.
Wishing doesn’t make it so; doing does.
Choose your battles; conserve your forces; fight smarter before harder.
Assets must be chosen for their most effective use.
Spreading them too thinly insures they are ineffective.
Insure that the messages get to the people who must act.
Remember the nail, the shoe, the horse, the rider, the message.
Some battles aren’t worth winning.
Never surrender what you have already won at heavy cost.
Some battles are worth committing everything available.
When to give up?
Winston Churchill said “Never, never, never give up.”
