He has chosen to title his essay “Losing the War.” This however is not originally the title. The longer title is as follows; “World War II had faded into movies, anecdotes, and archives that nobody cares about anymore. Are we losing the war?” Albeit subtle subtle, this is perhaps one of the most powerful choices Sandlin made in his argument. He is suggesting that although the war is considered “won” in the history books, the trauma it caused —as the general nature of the war— is anything but victorious. He is also arguing that the American public is, actually, losing the war.
General Clinton’s inaction after General Washington’s force departure guaranteed the historical unfolding of the Siege of Yorktown. The largest contributor to this British disaster lay in the lacking of an analytical apparatus, which could have effectively processed and utilized British intelligence. General Clinton chose to focus more on salvation in the form of reinforcements from Britain than on the immediate steps he could implement in his intelligence war fighting function to cement victory. This overreliance on an ineffective logistical support chain, combined with poor strategy, toxic leadership, and indecisiveness, resulted in an overly defensive positon. This ineptitude set the stage for the loss of British populace support, costing him the war of attrition.
Cmdr. Joseph Rochefort and the U.S.’s overall superior strategies of Nimitz and Fletcher was the true reason for why the U.S.’s seemingly impossible victory became possible. The two key themes that I will focus analysis on is the failures in the Japanese strategic planning and execution at Midway and U.S. determination and resilience to keep pushing on even after things, especially with USS carriers leading up to and during the actual war was falling apart. Symonds begins to argue his case by dissecting Japan’s plans for conquest and domination in the Pacific. He starts with looking at the Japanese failure by several of their military philosophies.
Their opposing views played a huge role in how each determined their approaches to their strategy for Germany. The British strategic culture was reflecting on the recent defeat of France and their retreat at Dunkirk. They were also bringing baggage along from WWI where they suffered massive casualties, while the U.S. arrived to the fight much later. Because of Dunkirk and WWI wounds, the British was very opposed to head on assaults. The U.S. had a completely different strategic culture that guided their Clausewitzian approach concentrating maximum forces against the Germans.
Power based negotiations does have its benefits, but it’s not without faults. Communication can be impacted, and produce a negative effect. By using power based negotiations, the parties take a critical risk of impacting the relationship. The use of power based negotiation can foster mistrust and anger. The parties view each other as adversaries, and can withhold information that may hinder the negotiation.
Equality is not wrong to want something for himself, especially after servicing others his whole life. But while Equality's outlooks aren't necessarily bad, there still needs to be balance. If everyone thought only about themselves, society would crumble. People have to rely on each other to an extent, and total selfishness would prevent this. That being said, someone can have selfish moments while still being a good person and caring for others.
Proven that Optimists handle much better in tight situations where not giving up and persistence are a must have while pessimists look for things to go wrong and that keeps them from reaching, or even noticing their goal. If you can’t think about the positive and look for the good things in life then things will be hard and easier to give up on. Perseverance means that you move on and try to achieve success, despite the things that go wrong or become difficult. This is exactly what William did when everyone
In conclusion, the authors of, “A Stitch in Time,”and , “ Structured Procrastination,” give very good arguments of why procrastination is not a positive thing.

Currently, when I make a mistake, I tend to judge myself as being stupid or incompetent. Additionally, when considering a new challenge, I am sometimes filled with self-doubt. I have to get past the point of doubting my skill and capabilities. This internal doubt is not productive or motivating. Strategies I am currently utilizing and hope to hone include use of positive self-image while at the same time questioning my actions.
Given the risk considerations provided in the RCD tool and the Portfolio Theory, the next step should be understanding the available risk/return metrics and determining an optimal mix of assets. Risk Metrics and Advantage/Disadvantages There are two risk metrics used in the model, Conditional Tail Expectation (CTE) and Value at Risk (VaR). These two metrics both look at the tail of the distribution. VaR is a measure of particularly poor outcomes in a stochastic projection. Its major shortcoming is its lack of statistical coherency.
