No one loves a quote more than me (especially the sales type, but we’ll get to that later). They keep me motivated if not inspired, and help me get through the day. Here are 10 timeless quotes that apply to your project to inspire everything from budgeting through to deployment.
One thing that the changes in the world right now have taught us is that there are no crystal balls to see into the future. However, there is something to be said for being proactive when you know what the business and more importantly the customers need.
2. If you believe business is built on relationships, make building them your business ~ Scott Stratten
Trust is hard to gain and easy to lose. Face-to-face meetings aren’t always going to be possible and 2020 has done a good job of enabling us with the tools and resources to build relationships virtually.
Worrying is a poor use of imagination and energy. Better to convert that energy into innovative planning and problem-solving activity.
Projects don’t happen by themselves. Once all the decisions have been made, it’s business time! Business is simply a professional word for busyness.
5. One of the true tests of leadership is the ability to recognise a problem before it becomes an emergency ~ Arnold Glasow
Now is the time to work on the important, not the urgent. If it’s urgent and important, then that’s a no brainer. However, ‘urgent only’ shouldn’t trump ‘genuinely important’!
6. If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late ~ Reid Hoffman
Timing is everything in this day and age. Waiting for perfect conditions could mean missing the boat or missing even the necessary outcome of the whole project.
Warren Buffett said: Price is what you pay. Value is what you get. The cheapest price isn’t always the best deal. Often the reason something isn’t the cheapest option is because it has quality and value baked in that you can’t see at first glance.
There’s no shortage of change at the moment. These changes need to make an impact and improve systems, operations, productivity and customer/ employee experience.
Oftentimes, internal processes can stifle progress and disrupt desired outcomes. With supply chain constraints and obstacles like never before, a determined early commitment from key stakeholders can mean the difference between a project’s success or failure.
Compromising integrity, values and quality shouldn’t be necessary to get the project done right.
