Improvise – Adapt – Overcome

Improvise adapt overcome was a principle motto in Special Operations and the slogan adorned many T-shirts but it actually applies to every challenge.  To prevail in any situation – one must instantly conform to changing conditions, creatively outmaneuver obstacles and swiftly overwhelm the opposition.  It’s a simple template I recommend for any confrontation, sport or problem – improvise adapt and overcome.  It’ll get you thinking in the right direction.

Kahoka, MO 1988. 

In between college graduation and my report date to Officer Candidate School I cut timber, but I still had to stay in shape so I adapted to Amish country by improvising a little barn gym.  Calvert Clark’s farm.
