... so, who? Was it...some Rock Icon? Some mega star ? nope...it was a French General named Joseph Joffre who had a role in the defense of Paris during the Franco/Prussian war of 1870. To him is attributed great glory and the prestige of having a major role in the defeat of Germany in the 1914-18 war.
General Joseph Joffre of the French army was a man with a mission. I won't bore you with information or insights you can glean from a wiki search, I simply want to make one point. I suppose it's about 'the people we surround ourselves with'.... and it boils down to this,- if you are going at a 100km/hr, the last thing you want is to be a passenger in a vehicle (or movement) that is only toddling along at 20km/hr. It will hold you back.
Joffre put this wisdom into practice by having as his personal driver Georges Boillot, the winner of the French Grand Prix. Not bad, Joe...not bad at all!
