I'd like to start this Blog with the video posted by Bill Cummings that first introduced me to Jordan Peterson. It's still one of my favorites. Thanks Bill.    :salute:

BobK, BillC,
Thanks so much for this post. :salute: :salute: :salute:

I am in a conversation with a well known HG pilot. He is saying he has been keeping track of who in u$hPa has been making decisions that are negatively effecting Hang Gliding, BUT
has been asked to keep quiet. :( I know how I feel, but was at a loss for words.

Then I page back over to US Hawks forum and , BAM, it's in my face. Speak Up

We'll see how it goes. here's a link to the conversation, but its facebook again :( ..Houston Hang Gliding and Paragliding

Yes, that video from Bill says it so well. Speaking Up is the most powerful thing we can do. That's why USHPA doesn't have an open forum. They are afraid to let pilots speak up. That's why USHPA expelled me (Speaking up at City Council, speaking up in court, founding the U.S. Hawks where everyone can speak up). That's why Jack and Davis hold a tight grip on free speech. They all know that Speaking Up is the most powerful thing we can do ... so they try to crush that and make people afraid to say certain things.

Thanks Sam.    :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute:

Here's another Jordan Peterson video sent to me by Craig:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-aDisCBaK94



Craig also sent me this great speech by Norman Schwarzkopf:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgWCdqKYY-k



These are my notes from the speech:

Leadership is not managership.

Leaders lead people.

The challenge of leadership is to get people to do what they normally would not otherwise do.

Competence is important, but Character is the most important.

99% of failures were not from competence failure but from character failure.

Leadership is Character.

Leaders are respected because they accept responsibility.

You can delegate authority but not responsibility.

The true rewards of leadership come from the leadership itself.

Several points:

1. No organizations get better unless leaders admit something is wrong.

2. Leaders set goals. Goals are only meaningful if everyone understands their role in the goals. Goals are used to focus and limit.

3. Standards. Sets the measure of success. Leaders establish high standards

4. Failure is contagious. Success is infectious. Leaders reinforce success.

5. Leaders establish latitude to learn.

6. Great leaders don't tell people how to do their job.


Two rules for 21st century leadership:

1. Rule 13 - When placed in command, take charge. Do something.

2. Rule 14 - Do what's right.


Full circle back to character.

Character is doing what's right when you know you could get away with doing what's wrong.

Why did you lose faith in your country?

If the world is only going to have one superpower, thank God it's the United States.

America is the people.

Rule 13 and Rule 14.

Do what's right.


Thanks Craig!!    :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute:
