How do you…

… make sure you get the bubbling up of ideas through a coalition of energy, rather the boiling down that consensus inevitably provokes? It’s about eliminating all the ordinary, in-between stuff that is no good. You have to cut it out and concentrate all the energy on stretching for the best. Then the really good stuff acts as a magnet for more. If you allow middling stuff to stay – the filler stuff – then that works as a magnet for more of the same too

Some Say That Fear Has Two Meanings…

Forget Everything And Run….


Face Everything And Rise….

But I prefer Will Smith’s view in the film After Earth….

“Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me danger is very real but fear is a choice.”

High sentiments….

…. always win in the end, The leaders who offer blood, toil, tears and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time. When it comes to the pinch, human beings are heroic

– George Orwell

There is always…

… much to be said for not attempting more than you can do and for making a certainty of what you try. But this principle, like many others in life has it exceptions.

– Winston Churchill

The secret of…

…a leader lies in the tests he has faced over the whole course of his life and the habit of action he develops in meeting those tests.

– Gail Sheehy
