being in charge

"Never retract, never explain, never apoligoze...get the thing done and let them howl." There are so many levels on which one could respond to this quote. At one level, it sounds like advice on how to be a bulldozer and run down anyone who offers opposition. I don't recommend that. At another level, one can zero in on the time lost in explaining, retracting, and apologizing, while the house is burning down. There is something to be said for just moving ahead. And at another level, when we clearly feel the direction we must take and the job we must get done, there is a cetain serenity that emerges when we are truly willing to "let them howl."****HOW WONDERFUL that every issue has so many levels of truth. That makes life anything but dull.
