Success breeds complacency.
Complacency breeds failure.
Only the paranoid survive.
Just as you would not permit a fellow employee to steal a piece of office equipment, you shouldn’t let anyone walk away with the time of his fellow managers.
Your career is your business, and you are its CEO.
Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive.
The ability to recognize that the winds have shifted and to take appropriate action before you wreck your boat is crucial to the future of an enterprise.
Altogether too often, people substitute opinions for facts and emotions for analysis.
You have to pretend you’re 100 percent sure. You have to take action; you can’t hesitate or hedge your bets. Anything less will condemn your efforts to failure.
