Mark Twain

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.

This is how I feel lately when it comes to people I’m working with. Trying to convince them things aren’t the way they think it is and they have to prepare to be more agile / flexible, so they can adapt to the ever changing situation that is life, work, etc. Instead of trying to think of every possible outcome and making a plan for it. Above quote reflects it nicely.

Peter Hinssen

The world will never be stable again, but in the new normal you will see more and more volatility. You can’t bank on certainties, you have to be an expert on managing uncertainties.

For his full talk on the new normal head over to YouTube.

Steve Jobs

If you wanna hire great people and have them stay working for you, you have to let them make a lot of decisions and you have to be run by ideas not hierarchy. The best ideas have to win, otherwise good people don’t stay.
