Burn The Ships

|January 28, 2012 | Philosophy

“ When Spanish Conquistador Hernando Cortez landed in Mexico, one of his first orders to his men was to burn the ships they arrived on. Cortez was committed to his mission and did not want to allow himself or his men the option of going back to Spain. By removing this option, Cortez and his men were forced to focus on how they could make the mission successful. “

I know that this sounds like something I found in a self-help book, but it’s a concept which I had never heard of before, that a friend told me about the other day. I am not going to search how many bands are using this for a name. Burn the fucking ships.
