Gavin De Becker, The Gift of Fear

I have been a fan of Gavin De Becker for a long time, long before he wrote books.  His contributions to Security and the understanding of criminality have been monumental.

Laura Day on the Power of Intuition

Excellent video on understanding INTUITION in business, life and other.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY: 

“Pity for the guilty is treason to the innocent.”

-Ayn Rand, Author

No truer words have been spoken with the latest debacle POTUS and Eric Holder have created down on our southern border.  The ILLEGALS are massing is huge numbers creating a humanitarian problem that we are not responsible for, or too.  We cannot have any semblance of security in this country if we cannot stop people coming here ILLEGALLY, man, women or children.  There are laws to be followed to protect AMERICAN citizens.  Mexico’s problems, and other third world countries should take care of their own people.  Dropping children and infants at our border shows what these countries are made of and how they treat their citizens.  What parent would send babies out into the world alone, in the care of a bunch of criminals?  Give me a break!  We, Americans, are put into an impossible situation because our gutless “leaders” cannot make the hard calls.  LISTEN TO ME NOW, BECAUSE OF BARACK OBAMA’S IN-ACTION, AND ERIC HOLDER AND JEH JOHNSON, AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE DYING AND WILL CONTINUE TO DIE.  I will close with another relative quote.

“The truth will set you free, but first it will make you suffer.”

-Jim Davis

RULE OF THE DAY:

Learn to communicate.  This means not only speaking, but writing.  Also, learn to communicate under the guise of BREVITY.  If it cannot be said or stated under 90 seconds then you need to revise your statement.  Otherwise, you will boor people to death, or they will not pay attention to you and your information will be lost.  I will throw you a bone here, if your statement includes any information about a story, or history of you, or something you have done, take it out, no one cares.  If your statement is not FACTUAL keep your mouth shut.  If your statement has, “I think” in it, keep your mouth shut.  In the end I believe you will find, by default, that if you follow the above RULES, you will become a much better communicator in the PROTECTION and INTELLIGENCE business.  In closing I will tell you a little demonstration I would use when training Agents on what a FACT is. Put one of their hands on a table and place a knife over one of their fingers.  If they were not willing to bet a finger on the information they were proffering, then it was not a fact.  Supposition, innuendo, “I think” all fall into the worthless INTEL pile.  Meaning it is something the CIA would probably accept as accurate.

This lesson was stated in UNDER 90 seconds.
