>Don’t Criticize Until You Have Been There…
>…or at least willing to be there….
Read this in an interview with former Navy SEAL Howard Wasdin in the May 23 issue of “Time.” He http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=jacksjots-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=031269945X&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrresponds to question, “So why did the team make the choice to kill Osama bin Laden?:
“The guys in the room made that decision. If you want to be in a position to make those
types of decisions, go join the team.
Otherwise, just say thank you.”
Methinks that applies to any other profession/calling…like housewife, parent, quizmaster, preacher, youthworker, etc
If you think you need to second guess people who have to make decisions; zippeth thy lip unless and until you’ve “been there, done that” or at least are willing to put the effort into it.
By the way, I just looked at the reviews; and just ordered the book. It was scheduled to be published long before the Bin Laden operation, so it’s not a quick get it out and make money; the guy has been there, and it looks fascinating. Buy it (and, if you do, buy it off the link so I can make a few cents 🙂
