There are…

There are two sure ways to fail: never get started and quit before you succeed.

Many companies promote the language of risk-taking and innovation but are so concerned with short term profit goals that their culture discourages innovation (trying new things) and abandons promising projects too soon. It shouldn’t require exceptional moral courage to try new things and stick with them.

Here’s to…

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Innovation…

Innovation is the central issue in economic prosperity.

The best CEO’s I know are teachers, and at the core of what they teach is strategy.

The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.

The company without a strategy is willing to try anything.
