"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
“Sex, Leadership and Rock’n’Roll – Can life be that simple?”
“Not really. You need to know why you’re doing what you do as well.”
“So, does Leadership benefit from an MBA?”
“Yes, but no. You need attitude and soul as well …”
“So, is the secret of leadership not only technique but also attitude?”
“Er, definitely maybe …”
“A Zen Master once told me ‘whatever I say, do the opposite.’ So I didn't.”—Anon.
"I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversation."—George Bernard Shaw
“A wise man makes proverbs but a fool repeats them.”—Anon.
If our minds are taken up with fears and hopes about the future,
we shall miss the chances that the present offers us.
Much of a leader's time is spent trying to create a future that people will want to move towards (vision and strategy).
Do not forget to dwell and act in the present (execution).
