Abraham Lincoln Principles * Unite your followers with a "corporate mission." * Set specific short-term goals that can be focused on with intent and immediacy by subordinates. * Those leaders who achieve something at the head of one group will eclipse those who do nothing at the head of a hundred. * Sometimes it is better to plough around obstacles rather than to waste time going through them. * Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today. * Your war will not be won by strategy alone, but more by hard, desperate fighting. * Your task will neither be done nor attempted unless you watch it every day and hour, and force it. *Remember that half-finished work generally proves to be labor lost.
