Collected Pearls

These collected pearls of wisdom come from random notes I jotted down one spring day in 2005 while perusing Fortune Magazine.

  • Don’t trust the common wisdom.  Base knowledge on facts and analysis and not on “what everybody knows.”
  • when things are chaotic and out of control, do your triage; stop the bleeding.  Then figure out what happened.  Then create a plan for it to never happen again.
  • You are the average of who you hang out with.  Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you.
  • Real power is in having ideas and the courage to write them down.
  • Efficiency is doing things right.  Effectiveness is doing the right thing.
  • The real discipline comes in saying no to the wrong opportunities.
  • the way to overcome fear is to face it and take constructive action.
