The difference between project success and failure is good
BUT Nothing is impossible for the person who doesn’t have to do it!
Projects don’t fail in the end; they fail at conception
Everyone wants a strong project manager - until they get him
Watch out when things are going well
Don't get too attached to what you have created
“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but no vision.”
Every change is human change; any organizational change is personal
“The smallest of actions is always greater than the noblest of intentions.”
Robin S. Sharma from
‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’
“We have made the world a neighborhood through our scientific genius, and now through our moral commitment we must make of it a brotherhood. We've got to learn to live together as brothers or we'll perish as fools.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Few people can see genius in someone who has offended them.”
Feedback ‘nothing’ - "I’m doing ‘nothing’ about this"
What have I learnt?
"Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!"
"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."
"Impossible is nothing"
"You can't always get what you want"
The Philosopher - Mick Jagger
"Perfect" is the enemy of "Good Enough"
