On Endless Utilitarian Calculus:

If you do not remain aggressively panoramic and proactive, your leadership will degrade into one utilitarian calculus after another, leaving little time or energy for your actual ideological or grand vision. To be clear, reactivity is an occasional part of leadership. Unexpected or uncontrollable opportunities and threats burst into existence, forcing spontaneity and unscripted tactics. The opportunity is simply that opportune, or the threat is simply that threatening.
    If, however, our leadership is an endless trench warfare of one utilitarian calculus after another, we will eventually find ourselves at a stalemate, shooting unproductively across no-man's-land and barely moving an inch toward the grand vision. Read into opportunities and ask, "Is this wise and fitting to our master plan?" Read into threats and ask, "Is this a house fire or ankle fire?"
