I attended “Accelerating Performance Through Flawless Execution” presentation by Matt “Whiz” Buckley with Afterburner, Inc. Matt was a US Navy Hornet Pilot who quickly acknowledged that you will not attain flawless execution but strive toward this end. It is easy to see the need for great execution when flying a multimillion dollar supersonic aircraft.

3. What is said in the room stays in the room – except of course lessons for the future
