Admiral James Stockdale is a hero. His name should be taught in every school in the nation and his name should be spoken daily as a reminder of what courage and leadership should look like. For those who don’t know of Admiral Stockdale, I would encourage you to learn more, but for today’s purpose let it suffice that you come to know the Stockdale Paradox. It will change how you see challenges in your life and in the world. This is a nice introduction, but Good to Great author James Collins.
