Students of the Craft

A defining moment in your career is the point that you feel you have enough experience and training to do your job well but you don’t settle for that.

    Denial kills you twice. It kills you once, at your moment of truth when you are not physically prepared: You didn’t bring your gun; you didn’t train. Your only defense was wishful thinking. Hope is not a strategy. Denial kills you a second time because even if you do physically survive, you are psychologically shattered by fear, helplessness, horror and shame at your moment of truth

    -From the book, On Combat, by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
