Rise Above, No Excuses!

Rise Above, No Excuses!

You’ve had a long day at work,

Your legs are sore from yesterday’s workout,

It’s raining outside,

It’s cold outside,

It’s hot outside,

The drive is too far,

You don’t have time,

Your alarm didn’t go off,

These are excuses made by common people,

You are not common,

You are not a quitter,

You are not the person you may have been in the past,

You are an unyielding competitor,

You will succeed,

You will undeniably rise above it…

 

No excuses!!!

Hope Defined

Hope Defined

“I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists; despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us, so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting…”

– Barack Obama, Election Night Victory Speech 11.06.2012

10 Tips on INNOVATION

10 Tips on INNOVATION

1.       INNOVATION is the specific tool of entrepreneurs, the means by which they exploit change as an opportunity for a different business or a different service. It is capable of being presented as a discipline, capable of being learned, capable of being practiced. Entrepreneurs need to search purposefully for the sources of innovation, the changes and their symptoms that indicate opportunities for successful innovation. And they need to know and to apply the principles of successful innovation. Peter Drucker

 

2.       Perhaps our originality manifests itself most strikingly in what we do with that which we did not originate. To discover something wholly new can be a matter of chance, of idle tinkering, or even of the chronic dissatisfaction of the untalented. Eric Hoffer

 

3.       CREATIVITY is thinking up new things. INNOVATION is doing new things. Theodore Levitt

 

4.       The INNOVATION point is the pivotal moment when talented and motivated people seek the opportunity to act on their ideas and dreams. W.Arthur Porter

 

5.       The greatness of art is not to find what is common but what is unique. Isaac Bashevis Singer

 

6.       Create your own method. Don't depend slavishly on mine. Make up something that will work for you! But keep breaking traditions, I beg you. Konstantin Stanislavisky

 

7.       Create your own method. Don't depend slavishly on mine. Make up something that will work for you! But keep breaking traditions, I beg you. Mark Twain

 

8.       Innovation is the creation of the new or the re-arranging of the old in a new way. Michael Vance

 

9.       When there is an original sound in the world, it makes a hundred echoes. John A. Shedd

 

10.    One of the greatest pains to human nature is the pain of a new idea. Walter Bagehot
