Disruptive Thinking – Einstein Was Way Ahead Of His Time

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

Early in the current war we used that quote to stimulate out of the box thinking. Can you come up with any other quotes that have inspired you?

    I also had a CO in the 82nd once who like to talk about “rigid flexibility.” What he meant was that we should always be ready, willing and able to flex to the changing demands of the tactical situation – or as he put it, to adhere rigidly (i.e., steadfastly) to the doctrine of being flexible. That operational philosophy has really stuck with me through the year’s.
