I'm a realist. I want to hear the bad news first. Have a 'Plan B'. The future is not predictable. Be ready to change tactics quickily. Have reserves. We will make mistakes, so will the enemy. The enemy will get lucky some times, so will we -- the key is to take advantage of our luck and of the enemy's mistakes. Acting quickly doesn't mean acting impulsively. We have been given intelligence and free will to get through life. Don't expect more. You're not a Celestial Welfare Client.
