Discipline & Leadership

"Discipline means organization, chain of command, and logistics."

This was written by Zun Tzu in his Art of War, around 2000 or more years ago. His lessons in strategy, planning and war-management (the subjects which he address throughout the book) do render a great deal of insight into managment and planning in general. Take, for instance, the quote already mentioned: As a student of management studies so far so I know not of any theory or practice in which an organization, no matter how decentralised (when authority and power are shared with lower-level employees) and unstructured in its own sense, where chain of command, logistics and discipline does not exist.
  There is another inspiring piece of lesson in strategic assessment by Master Tzu on leadership that "Leadership is a matter of intelligence, trustworthiness, humaneness, courage, and sterness."*

* Both quotes have been made from "The Art of War", Translated by Thomas Cleary.

Why? Why divorce a subject from others? It doesn't work without meditation, reason and its fun!

Nevertheless, I am honored. Thanks for visiting!
