Perception is the reality.
Fail to prepare and prepare to fail.
We tend to become like the worst in
those we oppose.
Power attracts pathological personalities.
It is not that power corrupts, but that power is a magnet for the
Many things we do naturally become difficult

Dialectics: The art of investigating the truth
of opinions, testing the truth by discussion and logical disputation.
Never put passion before principles; even if
you win you have lost.
It is always what you are not doing that
will make the difference.
If you always do what you've always
done, you will always get what you've always got.
At no time while I am helping you
with any problem

instant your problem becomes mine, you will no longer have a problem.
I cannot help someone who doesn't have a problem.
Do not grieve for the impossible.
If I now find that I have become
something I did not believe I was, how can I be sure that if I change my
behaviour I will become that which I wish to be?
Work expands and contracts with the
amount of time allowed for it.
To put others off: their game ask them
what they are doing differently that has drastically improved their performance.
Loser trap: impact of change on performance
against projected improvements.
Timetables: reduce the need to constantly
Principle of delayed gratification: doing
least liked tasks first.
The truth will set you free.
Brevity is the soul of wit.
Always tell the truth and you never have to
remember what you said.
Volume is vanity, profit is sanity.
Without compromise the search for perfection
may lead nowhere.
Culture is a pattern of basic assumptions,
invented, discovered or developed by a given group as it learns to cope with its
problems of external adaptation and internal integration, assumptions which work

the correct way to perceive, feel, think and act in relation to those problems.
The longest journey begins with a single
80/20 commitment, so presumably each 1%
increase in commitment generates an increased 4% return.
What can I do to make profit today?
What would I do if it was my own business?
If the logic of your argument is strong,
you don't need to use emotion.
The trick is… to move people into an
environment where it is easy for them to make a decision.
A competency is a characteristic of an
individual that predicts performance in a job
You can teach a turkey to climb a tree
but it is better to hire a squirrel
Rise like lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number
Shake to earth your chains like dew
Which in sleep has fallen on you.
You are many, they are few.
If your life works, you influence your family.
If your family works, your family influences
If your community works, it influences the
If the nation works, it influences the world.
If your world works, the ripple effect spreads
throughout the universe.
Well designed and well delivered solutions improve the quality of life for the maker and the user

salutary gift. Hardly less important is the capacity to see others as they see
NO QUEST, NO MAGIC.
Ability is an indicator of potential not a
predictor of performance
The potential advantage of experience is the
effect it has on confidence.
Positive thinking is a form of thought, which
habitually looks for the best results from the worst conditions.
Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you
will never go any higher than you think.
Imagination isn’t fantasy. Imagination is
the art of the science of the projected image.
Threshold capabilities – the minimum level of skills experience and intelligence which get you to ‘good’ but not ‘great’
There is an elementary truth,
ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans,
The moment one definitely commits oneself,
then Providence moves too,
All sorts of things occur to help one, that
never otherwise would have occurred…
Whatever you can do,
Or dream you can do,
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it
Begin it now.
