Monday’s Quote of the Week

Andy Grove, the former CEO of Intel, wrote the book, Only the Paranoid Survive, a testament to his relentless drive and devotion.

Two of the quotes attributed to him are a good way to start the week … and to be reminded of what I wrote about last week … that hope is NOT a strategy and that Action IS the cornerstone of our success.

“You have to pretend you’re 100 percent sure. You have to take action; you can’t hesitate or hedge your bets. Anything less will condemn your efforts to failure.”

Monday’s Quote of the Week

"If you don't like change, you're going to like irrelevance even less." ~ General Eric Shinseki

There’s little doubt that the world is moving at Mach 10 these days and on many fronts.

It’s not always a good thing, but it’s a’comin’ whether we like it or not.

That’s why we need to adapt, to be eternally vigilant about what’s ahead and be prepared to accept, embrace … and even endorse …the changes coming our way.

It sure beats the alternative, doesn’t it?

Monday’s Quote of the Week

"The secret of concentration is elimination."  ~ Dr. Howard Hendricks

By any other name, FOCUS is the one thing we all struggle with.

There is too much to do, too much coming at us and we want it all.

We want to work hard, perform well, love our families, dote on our children … and be great athletes, gifted musicians … did I leave out the Red Carpet encore?

This simple quote is another way to frame the issue.

The less we try to do, the more we can accomplish and this is one swing thought that might help.

Question: What’s the one thing you can STOP DOING TODAY … so you can focus on what you really need to get done?
