While in high school, aged 17, I interned very briefly with a chemical engineering team. Ben Krofchak was my great-grandboss. I overheard him deliver this line—with passion—to one of his subordinates on at least one occasion. It's wonderful advice, and I've found myself repeating it—through quite unconscious motivation—to myself ever since. Oddly, the older I get (and I'm 57 as I write this) the more I remember it. When I'm trying to figure out how to do something, Ben Krofchak's wisdom is often all that stands between the application of the first boneheaded idea that comes into my head and the reasoned, synthesized, sanity-checked and verified idea that emerges after performing the due diligence that Ben inspired.
