Notice:  Offline for a Week

By | February 26, 2023

[February 26, 2023]  Alas, I will be offline for a week due to a planned medical procedure that will keep me off my feet.  As regular readers of my leadership blog know, I rarely miss a day without a post.  While I will attempt to post during this week, it is unlikely.  Since I alone maintain this website, there will be no articles.

Please continue to read other older articles and make comments.  I will do my best to read those comments, and on occasion, I will reply.

Here are some of my older articles that remain popular, per my site’s software analytics:



Please read my books:

  1. “55 Rules for a Good Life,” on Amazon (link here).
  2. “Our Longest Year in Iraq,” on Amazon (link here).
Author: Douglas R. Satterfield

Hello. I provide one article every day. My writings are influenced by great thinkers such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Jung, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Jean Piaget, Erich Neumann, and Jordan Peterson, whose insight and brilliance have gotten millions worldwide to think about improving ourselves. Thank you for reading my blog.

    Welcome back to your blog, Gen. Satterfield. I’m sure your surgery will be rescheduled. While we look forward to you being well, we will miss you too while you are out.

      Hey guys and gals, the good news is that Gen. Satterfield is back on line. See today’s article. Slow start but still a start.

    Gen. Satterfield, you’re tough and ornery, so that alone will pull you thru. I’ve put a lot of dirtbags away in my lifetime and loved doing it. You love interacting with us, and publishing a daily article now for almost a decade. That alone is something you should be proud of. Hey, if you ever are in St. Paul, Minnesota, drop by one of our police precincts and ask for “DI Fred Thursday”. That is my nickname, not my real name but I will go where ever you are and we can have a talk about the world. I look forward to it.

    1. Greg NH

      Yeah, great diea DI Fred. Minnesota is a lost state. Never lose the faith.

    1. Mikka Solarno

      Yes, Doc, and I believe we all have the same wish. Thanks for supporting Gen. Satterfield, as we all are, in his time of need.

  5. Mr. T.J. Asper

    Ack, just found out, best of luck Gen. Satterfield and wishing for a swift return. Oh, and I’m still plugging for your book “55 Rules for a Good Life.” Everyone should read this book. Should it be mandated? Well, no, of course not. Sometimes there are things you should do but should never be mandated to do. Just read Gen. Satterfield’s book and you will see for yourself.

    Gen. Satterfield, our prayers are with you and your family. We await your return and the sooner, the better for us all. Keep your head up. Keep you attitude positive. Make sure your doctors tell you the truth. Stay the course. Your articles and kind words will be missed for the next week or so.

    1. Emma Archambeau

      Right, patriots of our nation stand tall with Gen. Doug Satterfield, author, Army General, family man, great patriot, and friend to those who seek truth and responsibility.

      1. Greek Senator

        Once again, I read exceptional comments from those who frequent Gen. Satterfield’s leadership forum. I, for one, have benefited greatly from his articles and daily comments on a wide-range of topics. That is why I’m such a huge huge fan of his and of his website that he so meticulously keeps. And, no advertisements. Well, occasionally he will hold up one of his two books and recommend we purchase them. That is okay. Good luck Gen. S. with your “medical procedure” and we are praying for you.

  7. Dennis Mathes

    Gen. Satterfield, good luck with your medical procedure. As you are laid up, please get ready to give us a strategic update on the Ukraine War and it’s implication for future military and economic and political actions between China, Russia, America, and the rest of the West. Looking forward to your return.

  8. Rev. Michael Cain

    Praying for you every day.

  9. Army Captain

    I’m missing you already. Recover fast, think fast, strike fast. And upload another article fast. If you need help, let us know.

    1. Audrey

      Army Captain, nailed it.

      1. Janna Faulkner

        Audrey, where did you get the army emoji? You are on it girl. I’m not into emjois but i like to see them on occasion. And here we are getting ready for a short absence of Gen. Satterfield and missing him already. thanks Army Captain and Audrey.

  10. Max Foster

    Gen. Satterfield, I think you can see from the outpouring of comments in the forum that your daily articles will be greatly missed by all and your insights into the human mind will be something we will experience as a gap in our daily updates. Hang in there. Keep a chin up, so to speak. Be thinking about what you will write next. We will be waiting here, checking in daily, for your next article. If you can give us an update, please do so. 👀👀👀👀👀 Looking foward to your return.

      Another comment on the value of Gen. Satterfield’s website of leadership and the pursuit of responsibility.

        😀😀😀😀 Greaat website, I’ll miss the daily articles but look forward to reading more in a week from now.

  11. Georgie B.

    Good luck Gen. Satterfield and let us know when you’re well enough for a new article.
