One of my favorite principles of leadership and life in general is what I call the Davy Crockett Method. I’ve quoted this method for many years and I’ve been known to quote this principle in many situations. A situation will arise where someone asked “how should we approach this problem?” I always answer “I would use the Davy Crockett Method.” As most people nowadays are not as familiar with the saying of Davy Crockett, I almost always have to explain what the Davy Crockett Method is by giving the quote: “Make sure you’re right, then go ahead.” Sound advice.
