‘D’ Disposition - Death (Willingness to Die)
The idea of death usually yields negative reactions. However, in business the idea of death or the willingness to die can have many benefits. As business leaders we must learn to die to such things as our feelings, emotions, and insecurities. How many times have we heard it said, not to make a decision when we’re emotional?
Insecurities is another area that business leaders should be mindful of. Insecurities tend to make people self-protect themselves or take less risk in the area they are insecure in. As business owners there is even greater importance to these sentiments. Death is a necessary attribute. The willingness to let ideas that aren’t working, die. The willingness to let the old way of doing things, die. Even the earth has winter, a season of death. That death yields the new birth of spring.

Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius. --Pietro Aretino
