Things to Think About - I have accepted fear as part of life, specifically the fear of change

Things to Think About - Talent hits a target that no one else can hit

This quote definitely goes on my “Gee, I wish I had said that!” list.  It brings together three powerful forces: simplicity, insight and imagery to make it unforgettable.  One can’t help but think of people like Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Jeff Bezos when contemplating Schopenhauer’s... more >>
 

Things to Think About - Champions aren’t made in gyms

I have always enjoyed the down-to-earth common sense of Muhammad Ali. This quote is telling us something that has been proven over and over again regarding human behavior—champions (leaders) are made, not born, and they are made by themselves more than any outside force or circumstance. more >>
 

Things to Think About - Life tends to snap you at your weakest link

Things to Think About - The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places

I must admit I have never been a fan of Hemmingway, but to me, the power of this quote is inescapable. First of all, it addresses the fact that as we go through the failures and setbacks that life inevitably serves up, we are not alone—all of us have our own stories to tell. more >>
 

Things to Think About - If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur

I came across this quote many years ago as a young professional.  And, while it did put a smile on my face, reading it then, also gave me a deep respect for all those people who are dedicated to their profession, whatever it may be. more >>

Things to Think About - Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky

Thich Nhat Hanh is the Zen Master who Reverend Martin Luther King referred to as an “Apostle of Peace”.  One of the things I like about this quote is its relevance and clarity in both good times and bad.  Think about it for a moment. more >>
 

Things to Think About - Brave men are all vertebrates

I can’t read this quote without thinking about the brave people who quietly, and through their actions support others, especially if those “others” don’t look like them as opposed to the “crustaceans” in society who are afraid to accept what Vaclav Havel called “the otherness of others” and ... more >>

Things to Think About - In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable

Things to Think About - Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to achieve it

What an interesting perspective on success and how to evaluate it.  Like so much of what the Dalai Lama says, it’s subtle and simple, but profound.  Stop and think about it for a moment and what it says about someone. more >>
 

Things to Think About - Procrastination is opportunity’s assassin

I just love quotes that cause you to nod your head in agreement, or that send a chill up your back because they speak an uncomfortable truth that really resonates.  This quote does both for me and every time I feel like putting something off that I know I should be doing, it comes back to haunt... more >>
 

Fact: Over 40% of the companies that were at the top of the Fortune 500 in 2000 were no longer there in 2010
