the map is not the territory
meaning.. don’t limit yourself to one discipline. Be curious. Explore 🙂
Caught this on a whiteboard at work 🙂
In business, just like in life, we are going to have to deal with the unexpected, the unanticipated and the unfair. Those who deal most successfully with all of it are the ones who have the attitude that indeed whatever happens is normal. That doesn’t mean that whatever happens is acceptable or pleasant. But it does mean that changes and surprises are part of life, and we can choose to either roll with the changes or the change rolls over us.
Great quote by Mark Horstman (Manager Tools fame) on everyone being biased
You can find all the bias-less people..Under the ground 🙂
I am so surprised that I haven’t heard this phrase till now. I guess I did, but didn’t pay attention :). Over heard this in a talk by a 6th grader on things he learnt from saints.
Respond and don’t react
For most of our interactions in this world, we are quick to react. But instead if we paused and responded to the situation, the world would be a better place.
Simple but powerful quote by Xun Kuang, known as Xunzi (a Chinese Confucian philosopher of the 3rd century BC)
Not having heard something is not as good as having heard it; having heard it is not as good as having seen it; having seen it is not as good as knowing it; knowing it is not as good as putting it into practice.
Inspiring quote by Aruna Miller
Success is when you add value to yourselves
Significance is when you add value to others
