Five Things I’ve Learned From NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs

5. Once a Marine, always a Marine.
Semper Fi.

4. Working with your hands is therapeutic. Gibbs does not watch tv. He is constantly in the process of building a boat–by hand, no power tools–in his basement.   This is his therapy as well as his entertainment. Gibbs’ team knows where to find him when he is upset, stressed or needs time to himself.

3. Don’t waste words–get right to the point.

2. Surround yourself with the best. Pick people for your team who can be trusted to pack your parachute and who will go to the mat for you.

1. Trust your gut. To quote Abs,  NCIS forensic scientist: “Never question the gut.”  Gibbs rivals Athanasius of Alexandria in his ability to stand his ground against EVERYONE ELSE.  Ooo-rah.

    “Trust your gut.” What does this mean?

    It means that if you know something intuitively, trust it, until it is proven wrong. Someone told me once, “Trust your Mother’s intuition. God gave it to us for a reason.” Mom’s don’t have a monopoly on intuition.
