Default Air Force Logo #YOLO
While unpacking from another permanent change of station, I came across a folder filled with clippings I have been carrying around with me since my early days in the Air Force.  Flipping through it, I stopped on one of my favorites, a commentary written 18 years ago by Army Colonel Mark Blum. In the piece entitled "Important vs. Urgent", Colonel

Default Air Force Logo Why do you serve?
What we saw on the morning of September 11, 2001, changed America forever. This was an unprovoked murder of 3,000 people, simply because they were American. There was a story written about a two year old girl named Christine Lee Hanson which hits home when I read it because I have a two year old daughter. Christine Lee Hanson was on her way to

Default Air Force Logo Balance
Whether we're talking about our life, family, or career, it boils down to balance.  Having a healthy balance is the only way that we can sustain effectiveness.  I can recall times as a young officer when working 14 hours a day was common.  There are times when the mission will drive us to work extended hours, but it shouldn't be the norm.  Getting

Default Air Force Logo Leadership is for the Colonel
"Hey, Senior Airman Chance you are taking over the flight training program because we are undermanned and the dart I threw pierced your name. Call the help desk and schedule an appointment with the Wing commander so he can motivate you to not fail with this responsibility the dart chose for you." Now all I have to do is make sure my troop dots the

Default Air Force Logo Comfort Zone
When was the last time you stepped outside of your comfort zone?  I was recently asked to assume a new leadership position which involves duties and responsibilities that I have never done before, and yes, I panicked.  I have spent my career honing my skills to be the best dental lab technician I can be.  When I was asked to be a flight chief for a

Default Air Force Logo The “I” in Airman
It is often spoken that each one of us is important to our mission. It may seem cliché when you hear it, but think about the impact of that statement. I am one of many Master Sergeants on this base and the same can go for any rank. So how is it that so much value placed on each of us?  Why am I such an important piece of the mission that happens

Default Air Force Logo Joint Security at Luke AFB
Following force reductions in 2014, career fields around the Air Force likely experienced manpower strains in daily operations - the 56th Security Forces Squadron was no exception to these cuts.  In September 2013, the squadron was authorized 185 active duty members. By October 2014, the unit was reduced to a mere 136 active-duty members.  With

Default Air Force Logo Embracing Change
Are you afraid of change? Most people are.  Every day we experience change in our lives and we certainly can't hide from it.  We learn and grow from changes, that's what makes the world go around.  With all of the Air Force and day-to-day life changes, learning to deal with change must be one of our biggest priorities.Some ways to successfully

Default Air Force Logo The psychology of leadership
When given the opportunity to lead, how do great leaders ensure people want to follow them?  In the military it is sometimes the case that followers simply have to follow, but what makes people want to follow? The study of leadership has been taking place since the beginning of time.  Great philosophers and warriors like Plato and Sun Tzu have
