As a young USMC officer candidate my senior DI-Platoon Sergeant had me stand in front of his desk at one or two in the morning with an 80-pound log straddling my shoulders as he discussed leadership with me. He did the talking, I listened. The chats lasted one to three hours. I remember many of the things he said, however, one principle has resonated for almost 40 years.
