Some inspiration and hope for the week of 10/24/14

Quick news announcement. I’m super proud to announce that I landed a really exciting and great job with Akins Public Strategies. I’ll be doing mostly public relations work — you know, writing, researching, branding, etc.

And now for the good stuff!

Hope these inspire you!



Keep the faith,

Stan R. Mitchell

    Congratulations Stan.
    I was drafted to write and proof read confidential operation orders to invade some foreign country when I was a young GySgt. I always tried to remember what my superiors thought and then made notes (at the end of the day) of what I wanted to accomplish the next day. I had to consider motor T, supply, administration and air wing attachments and what they should be doing. Lots of telephone calls to people who knew more than I did really helped.
    I always followed my previous days notes and never came out wrong. Probably what everyone shoud do to be successful.


    • 1stSgt,

      That’s actually some brilliant advice. Thanks so much for sharing it, and it occurs to me having read this, that maybe I should send a few questions to some of the regulars? About some of the best lessons they’ve learned?

      It gets old with just me yammering anyway? What do you think? And what are some great standard-type questions that would apply to some of the civilians, as well?




  3. I love all of these! Thanks, Stan. For always keeping it in perspective. Congrats on the new job!
