“Great Minds”


“Our Focus and Context is shaped by three vital questions:   Where am I going?  (vision);   What do I believe in?  (principles and values);   Why do I exist?  (purpose or mission).”     (Jim Clemmer, “Looking Back to Look Ahead”


“My father-in-law uses an expression, ‘Attitude is everything.’   It’s his non-confrontational way of saying, ‘Stop complaining.’   When my father-in-law says, ‘Attitude is everything,’ it isn’t just an admonition — it’s a prescription.  Right now, we are experiencing a massive explosion of creativity.   Businesses (and businesspeople) that can find the excitement in that have a fighting chance of surviving the transition and thriving.   Those who choose to fight the future and pretend the old ways are coming back, well, you may be the subject of your own TV series one day.   But it’s likely to be on the History Channel.”      (Robert Safian, Fast Company Magazine)


“Who you hang out with determines what you dream about and what you collide with.   And the collisions and the dreams lead to your changes.   And the changes are what you become.

Change the outcome by changing your circle.”      (Seth Godin)


“Great minds have purposes,  others have wishes.   Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune;  but great minds rise above them.”      (Washington Irving)
