1/- Invest in great gear just to admire the quality & engineering .

  • Leadership: This is like getting all the training, reading all the books and going to all the best conferences but never putting the information gained into practice. Up-skilling is great and necessary but it is the application of the learning that matters.

2/- Don’t cast your line out.

  • Leadership: No matter what you do you will never achieve any thing by procrastination.

3/- Avoid getting your gear wet or dirty.

  • Leadership: Leading equals doing, sometimes the best way to get something done is to just get your hands dirty.

4/- Don’t use the right bait or any bait at all.

  • Leadership: You need to resource others with the right tools they need to get things done.

5/- Don’t bother going fishing just talk about it.

  • Leadership: All the planning in the world means nothing without action.

6/- Go to places where there are no fish.

  • Leadership: Poor direction will lead to poor results.

There are many others but I am sure you get the picture.
