General George Patton

General George Patton (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.”   —   George S. Patton

(Which is probably why he wasn’t involved in planning the D-Day Invasion of Normandy!  I don’t think this was meant to be a general statement.  It probably had more to do with the opportunity of the moment.  Element of surprise, and all that.  In this kind of context he is correct.  There are definitely times when “He who hesitates is lost” is sound advice.  He’s often portrayed as a bit of a coarse buffoon, but he was a very effective general.  Not nearly as cerebral as Eisenhower, but Patton had to contend with dyslexia, which gives most sufferers a feeling of inferiority.  This made him feel that he constantly had to prove himself.  That would be tough for anyone to contend with, but especially for a military leader.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
