Doesn’t Your Phone Know? The Allure of Competing on Cost
Oct 31

One of my most favorite eletters comes from Merge’s client, Rob Ketterer of Visionworks Consulting. Rob produces the most straight forward, but insightful newsletter that he sends out on a monthly basis.

Here’s a sample:

“Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” — Conrad Hilton, Hilton Hotels

Atari founder Nolan Bushnell said, “Everyone who’s ever taken a shower has an idea. It’s the person who gets out of the shower, dries off and does something about it who makes a difference.”

Andrew Carnegie was this type of man — he was known for building one of the most powerful corporations in history, and then later in life, giving away most of his riches to others. Reflecting on life, Mr. Carnegie wrote: “As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.”

The Bottom Line: Leaders are action oriented, knowing that ideas and talk without action are meaningless.

I highly recommend subscribing.
