A New Vision for MacDill’s “No-Fail” Mission: ‘Deliberate Excellence’

This post was originally published by MacDill Air Force Base - MacDill Headlines

December 15, 2014 in Florida, MacDill Air Force Base by clevine

The philosophy is simple: be deliberate, effective, and ensure flawless execution.  This is how 6th Air Mobility Wing Commander Col. Daniel Tulley unveiled Team MacDill's new way forward at an "all call" with base personnel.

The highlight of each of the five Commander's Call sessions was the release of the Wing's new strategic priorities, and the unveiling of a clear and concise new vision statement.

The Vision: Deliberate Excellence

"Deliberate means we will make things happen, rather than merely let or hope they happen:  we plan ahead, we are reactive only when it is unavoidable, and we seek to be strategic in our approach, rather than always rushing to put out fires," stated Tulley. "Excellence is a core value we internalize, a standard to which we hold ourselves and others accountable, and an expectation we have for results."

Tis the season to drink responsibly

 It's that time of year when holiday parties and late night celebrations begin to fill our calendars and we look forward to spending time with family and friends to celebrate our own special reasons for the season.

Every Christmas Eve, I celebrate my life and I give thanks for being able to share the holiday with my family. Nearly 30 years ago on Christmas Eve, my father, brother and I were hit by a drunk driver.

After a busy day of last-minute shoppers, my family and I closed our business at the mall for the evening. We were one of the last cars to leave the parking lot and I remember being the only one on the road. We sat patiently at a red light waiting to cross an intersection legally, even though there was no cross traffic for as far as the eye could see. Most travelers and shoppers had returned home in preparation for the holiday.
