Quote of the Day

Hearing someone described as being able to "fly by the seat of his pants" always suggests to me a leader who hasn't prepared properly and whose pants may soon fall down. 

- Bill Walsh

What a great quote. I was discussing at work just last week about how the checklist came to be such a big part of flying an airplane, when the raw skill of the pilot could no longer be trusted and preparation became the most important thing.

I wish I had this quote then to better illustrate the point.

I'm glad you liked it. The quote comes from Bill Walsh's "The Score Takes Care of Itself."

Interesting book.
