Food for Thought….Can’t see the Forest for the Trees…..
We all use quotes from time to time, my guess is many times we don’t even know we are quoting someone. Some famous, some not so famous. I have selected a few quotes that are believable and are, sometimes, words to live by….. especially for a small business owner. Let’s start with Eleanor.
With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. Eleanor Roosevelt —Be aware of new ideas, find strength from your colleagues and mentors.
Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things – Peter Drucker — Be the best leader you can, lead by example and reward leadership in others.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it – Dwight Eisenhower — You can motivate and inspire almost all employees, they are your first customers, lead them with passion, show them appreciation and give them room to grow.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.- John Quincy Adams — always commit to lifelong learning, encourage those around you to dream big and aspire to something big.
Don’t forget a little levity goes a long way…..
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Confucius
We owe a lot to Thomas Edison – if it wasn’t for him, we’d be watching television by candlelight. Uncle Milty (Milton Berle)
