Small did I know. you ne’er really happen out that message. Alternatively. “A Message to Garcia. ” is but a short harangue about what every man/woman should keep. and that is the willingness noncompliance to orders. “McKinley gave Rowan a missive to be delivered to Garcia ; Rowan took the missive and did non inquire. “Where is he at? ” Alternatively. Lt. Rowan carried out the bid brought upon him. and it is because of his actions that “A Message to Garcia” is one of the most sought out publications. This book does non travel into any farther item about President McKinley. or Lt. Rowan. but alternatively explains how the universe needs more people like Lt. Rowan. Men and adult females who can acquire the occupation done. without inquiring a million inquiries. without seeking advice from equals. without slacking when the “boss” isn’t looking. but alternatively “a adult male who can transport a message to Garcia. ” Elbert Hubbard goes on to explicate how an employer is ever at hunt. no affair if concern is good or bad. but ever puting off that employee who can non amount to such a criterion.
Now what I’ve taken off from this book. is that self-motivation that everyone needs from time-to-time. to go more than merely another employee. Yes. President McKinley was more than probably the 1 who took the congratulations for assisting Cuba secure its independency from Spain. Yet. this adult male. Elbert Hubbard. looked a small deeper. and found that it wasn’t President McKinley who won the war. but Lt. Rowans singular features that led him to follow orders.
His finding. duty. and intelligence led him to do certain his undertaking was accomplished. Leadership lessons we all should obtain. and lessons we should non roll from. For this adult male portrays what every Devil dog should be like. and what every Devil dog should endeavor to be. “A adult male who can transport out a message to Garcia. ”
This book was extremely recommended for me to read. and after reading it. I see no ground why every Devil dog hasn’t yet. After 100+ old ages. this book continues to do an impact on immature Marines such as myself. Whoever picks this book up and is changed by its text. chapeaus off to you.
