Captivating Lines from Here and There-16

  • Law of the garbage truck: Many people are like garbage trucks.They run around full of garbage- full of frustration, full of anger and full of disappointment.As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it. If they happen to dump it on you,don't take it personally.You just smile,wave,wish them well and move on. You will be happier you did that rather than fight them.
  • The very moment you begin to advance and are recognized as one who is doing things in a great way you will find yourself in danger. The temptation to patronize, advice, or take upon yourself the direction of other people's affairs is sometimes almost irresistible- Wallace.D.Wattles, Author
  • A valuable team exercise is to ask team members to describe examples of the strengths of each individual on the team. It helps in bonding of the team.
  • Are you hiring employees your customers would want you to hire?
  • Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things... I am tempted to think.... there are no little things- Bruce Barton,Advertisement Executive and Author
  • "Giving yourself away"means being vulnerable and honest.Show who you really are- atleast reveal enough of your humaneness to gain credibility- Bruce Barton
  • There is no great writing,only great rewriting.Editing is your opportunity to be sure what you have created is irresistible- E.B.White, Writer.
  • I find that people in India somehow tend to focus on achieving total agreement which is almost always impossible. So before work begins people want everyone to agree on everything. Instead they should say okay, this is what we agreed on, so let's start working on this.What we don't agree on we will resolve as we go along. For things to move forward, it is important to work on the agreed upon aspects and not get bogged down in the areas of disagreement- Sam Pitroda, telecom inventor, entrepreneur, and policy maker.
  • It takes discipline to consciously tell stories that build values like trust, loyalty,generosity and excellence in to our lives- Annette Simmons, Author of "Whoever tells the best story wins."
