“ADAPT OR DIE”, Andrew Grove, former CEO, Intel Corp
Be flexible. Expand your abilities. Grow your responsibilities. Adapt to the new environment, standards, direction, strategy…or die on the job. Move ahead of the curve. If you can’t, your career will suffer.
IN HOCKEY “… THE BEST PLAYER WILL SKATE TO WHERE THE PUCK IS GOING TO BE, NOT WHERE IT IS AT THE MOMENT”, Wayne Gretzky, famous hockey player.
If you only manage the moment, you’ll never influence the future. Shift your attention to where you want to be and then design the strategy to get there. The future has always been in your hands.
“WHEN YOUR LIFE FLASHES BEFORE YOUR EYES. MAKE SURE IT’S WORTH WATCHING.” – Unknown
What have you accomplished so far in your career? What could you have done to achieve a better outcome? What will you do differently in the future? Visualizing your actions helps to become a reality.
“EXPECTATIONS ARE THE GREAT KILLER”, Andrew Grove, Past CEO, Intel.
Is there an expectation gap between you and your boss… between you and your peers or subordinates… between you and your significant other? Big expectation differences will kill a relationship.
“IF WHAT YOU’RE DOING IS NOT YOUR PASSION, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE.” – Anonymous
If you’re not following your passion, you’re wasting your time. You’ll never be a success doing something you dislike. Greatness comes from an inner passion to be the best. Follow your passion and you’ll rise to the top.
“YOU MISS 100 PERCENT OF THE SHOTS YOU NEVER TAKE.” – Wayne Gretzky
If you don’t try, you can’t succeed.
“LIFE WAS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GONNA GET.”, Forrest Gump
You can’t predict the future and you can’t create your own environment, but you can make the best of what you have if you prepare well and have choices. You still have alternative even when you’re given an assorted box of chocolates.
“THERE ARE 3 TYPES OF PEOPLE: THOSE WHO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, THOSE WHO WATCH THINGS HAPPEN, AND THE VAST NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO IDEA WHAT’S HAPPENING” – BILL KAUFMANN
