The Prime Directive is:
Anything Jim Wilson is doing, no matter how insignificant, takes precedence over everything everyone else is doing, no matter how significant.
If another name besides Jim Wilson's is placed in with these words, it is no longer the Prime Directive, it is just a hmmmm, a nothing I guess.
The Prime Directive is good for the office, the unit, the Coast Guard, the country, the world & the universe.
Many successful people operate under the Prime Directive. How do you think the Commandant made Commandant & the Pope made Pope?
