While I'm Waiting

A guy I knew in the Cav (his name was PFC Dameron, but I don't remember his first name) taught me the Five Stages of a Military Operation.

I think they apply to most civilian endeavors as well.

STAGE ONE: Enthusiasm.

STAGE TWO: Disillusionment.

STAGE THREE: The search for the guilty.

STAGE FOUR: The punishment of the innocent.

STAGE FIVE: Praise and honors for the non-participants.

Act accordingly.
