Leadership

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Leadership is not magnetic personality — that can just as well be a glib tongue.

It is not ‘making friends and influencing people’ — that is flattery.

Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
~Peter F. Drucker

    I love this quote! I gave it to my son's baseball coach. He likes to incorporate lessons that can be applied to life overall, not just baseball.

    I think if you play for my Red Sox, then you're an exception to the rule (or think you are) and can do so!! Of course, they don't even try!! .........YET!

    That is so true! I hope you do not mind, but I have added you as a SparkFriend. I think over the past couple of years you and I have commented on each other's pages. What you say makes sense!

Needless Worry

Saturday, August 25, 2012

It has been my observation that people are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be. Abraham Lincoln

Don't Worry, Be Happy!
Bobby McFerrin

Over 92% of the things we worry about, won't happen, have already happened or will happen no matter what we do. Avoid needless worry!
