During World War II, the Allied Forces established supply bases in airfields on many islands in the South Pacific. The residents of those islands had never seen airplanes, or canned food, or many other things that the military uses to support operations. But they were intelligent people and they observed what the military people did to make all those goods show up. This is what they saw. The soldiers would go up into a tower with little poles sticking out of the top.

This weakness is as true for senior leaders as it is for the rank-and-file, but when a CEO or other senior executive is known for chasing shiny objects, a lot of people and projects can suffer.

Engel's knees hurt. This was the first time he'd been inside a church in twelve years, and he wasn't used to it any more. He'd come in here, all unknowing, and the first thing he knew he was on his knees on this hard wooden plank, and pretty soon the kneecaps had started burning, and then shooting pains had developed up and down the legs, and by now he was almost sure something was broken down there and he'd never walk again.
