In the early 1500’s, Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortez is believed to have scuttled his entire fleet, stranding his expedition in Mexico.
He did this to prevent any additional mutinous uprisings and to literally “burn his bridges,” ensuring those in his service would have no option but to fight and win.
Failure was apparently not an option.
While mistakes are good and certainly necessary on the road to success, success is still the ultimate goal.
Sometimes to win, you must refuse to accept any other alternative.
