already figured out when I'm going to be No. 2 and No. 1.
Adelson # Strategy,
- Why do
I need succession planning? I'm very alert, I'm very vibrant.
I have no intention to retire.
Adelson # Plan,
- The typical
human life seems to be quite unplanned, undirected, unlived,
and unsavored. Only those who consciously think about the
adventure of living as a matter of making choices among options,
which they have found for themselves, ever establish real
self-control and live their lives fully.
Albrecht # Life,
- It is
once your ideas have been transformed into enough money, and
if all failed, you would still live your lifestyle, and you
understand that just because you have made more money than
most, you are not better than the common person. We are all
going to die broke. (Blixseth's definition of success)
Blixseth # Plan,
- I can
imagine no more important contribution to our country's future
than a long-term commitment to improving urban K-12 public
Broad # Plan,
are as many Scottish roads to Socialism as there are predictions
of Britain's economic doom - but most of them demand three
things: a coherant plan for an extension of democracy and
control in society and industry which sees every reform as
a means to creating a socialist society; a harnessing of the
forces for industrial and community self-management within
a political movement; and a massive programme of education
by the Labour Movement as a whole.
Brown # Economic,
- If you're
doing something new you've got to have a vision. You've got
to have some north star you're aiming for, and you just believe
somehow you'll get there.
Case # Planning,
- If you
are small and wish to take on the big, the first step you
need to plan before you wage your challenge is your path of
Chu # Planning,
- You once
have one chance to shoot into a group of birds clustering
in a treetop. If you miss, you will frighten all the birds
away. Before you shoot, you need to calculate you angle and
your am carefully, so you one shot will yield two birds.
Chu # Planning,
you journey, observe the wind carefully, detect its direction,
and then follow it. You will get to your destination twice
as fast with half the effort.
Chu # Strategy,
your forces from singular to multiple. One piranha alone might
not have any impact; however, hundreds of piranhas will surely
overcome the shark.
Chu # Strategy,
- I never
really sit down and plot out the strategies. I merely flow
with the situation and then react accordingly.
Chu # Action,
think that your plan can't change. Mine does almost on a yearly
basis as I get older and, I hope, a bit smarter.
Clitheroe # Thinking,
- The best
plan is only good intentions unless it degenerates into work.
Drucker # Planning,
- I think
it is just stupid economics for a government to approach economic
management from a strand of thinking regarding unions as enemies.
Hawke # Stupid,
and until something concrete is done about addressing the
Israeli-Palestinian issue you won't get a real start on the
war against terrorism.
Hawke # Politics,
exaggerate their confidence in their plans - something we
call the planning fallacy... The existence of the plan tends
to induce overconfidence.
Kahneman # Planning,
- If this
Government cannot get the adjustment, get manufacturing going
again, and keep moderate wage outcomes and a sensible economic
policy, then Australia is basically done for. We will end
up being a third rate economy... a banana republic.
Keating # Government,
planning has been a major priority at Southwest for quite
some time. We think we have come up with a winning combination
of talent for our company reorganization.
Kelleher # Success,
- At first,
we couldn't be establishment, because we didn't have any money.
We were guerrilla marketers, and we still are, a little bit.
But, as we became No. 1 in our industry, we've had to modify
our culture and become a bit more planned.
Knight # Money,
actually wear the suits on the way up. Well make sure we're
stabilized and the temperature of the capsule is OK. Then
we'll take them off and save them for an emergency -- some
sort of pressure leak -- and then we'll be wearing them on
the way down.
Liniger # Strategy,
future you're building
Don't try to program everything.
5 Year Plans never worked for the Soviet Union - in fact,
if anything, central planning contributed to its fall. Chances
are, central planning won't work any better for any of us.
Omidyar # Future,
- We need
to give people more of an incentive to work, to save, to invest,
to create a true future for themselves.
Orman # Encouragement,
- If you
have not saved a penny for retirement and feel guilty about
it, you can begin saving today.
Orman # Money,
- I am
a financial planner, not a psychiatrist, but I do know that
your net worth will rise to meet your self-worth only if your
self-worth rises to accept what can be yours.
Orman # Finance,
- We believe
strongly that in the long term, we will be better servedas
shareholders and in all other waysby a company that
does good things for the world even if we forgo some short
term gains. This is an important aspect of our culture and
is broadly shared within the company.
Page # Good,
- We cannot
continue down this catastrophic path. And so we say to the
president, 'Mr. President, we need a new direction in Iraq.
Let us work together to find a solution to the war in Iraq'.
Pelosi # Iraq,
America from terrorism requires more than just resolve, it
requires a plan. As we have seen in Iraq, planning is not
the Bush Administration's strong suit.
Pelosi # Protection,
- You have
to figure out what that is, and you have to make a plan to
get to it. And the plan has got to have a timeline. You have
to choose something that you can afford to do and then lock
it in and passionately do it.
is not a success-only journey. Even the best-laid plans sometimes
must be altered and changed. Be open to input and consider
any potentially viable alternative. Be willing to be wrong
and be willing to start over.
- I love
tactics; I don't like plans.
Roddick # Planning,
- I have
said consistently, Australia will do no more and no less than
the rest of the world.
Rudd # Australian,
- I just
don't really get into all that sort of personal negative stuff.
My job is to outline some positive plans for the country's
future and perhaps Mr. Howard
and the Government don't like the fact that I'm putting out
some positive alternatives. What's their preference.. for
me to be a negative carping opposition leader?
Rudd # Job,
financial planners can't be all things to all people. So a
good first step is to work out what sort of planner you want,
and the sort of advice you want them to give you.
Sampson # Planning,
leaders must possess far-sighted vision, detailed action plans,
macro-thinking, and a global outlook. To get ahead in the
race, they must also possess a deep understanding of their
own organization and that of their competitors.
Ka Shing # Thinking,
- We are
fifty or a hundred years behind the advanced countries. We
must make good this distance in ten years. Either we do it,
or they will crush us.
Stalin # Development,
- A clear
vision, backed by definite plans, gives you a tremendous feeling
of confidence and personal power.
Tracy # Belief,
- I try
to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing
exclusively on the present. That's where the fun is. And if
it can't be fun, what's the point?
Trump # Learning,
- I never
planned on becoming a brand name. The success of the Trump
name worldwide has been a surprise.
Trump # Planning,
- Let your
plans be dark and as impenetratable as night, and when you
move, fall like a thunderbolt.
Tzu # Planning,
go into anything without figuring out where the exit is. Never
commit until you have to, and not until you have enough information.
Wilde # Planning,
- You need
a plan to build a house. To build a life, it is even more
important to have a plan or goal.
Ziglar # Planning,
- The web
is at a really important turning point right now. Up until
recently, the default on the web has been that most things
aren't social and most things don't use your real identity.
We're building toward a web where the default is social.
Zuckerberg # Internet,
U.S. President Barack
Obama and French President Nicolas
Sarkozy have used Facebook
as a way to organize their supporters. From the protests against
the Colombian FARC, a 40-year old terrorist organization,
to fighting oppressive, fringe groups in India, people use
Facebook as a platform to build connections and organize action.
Zuckerberg # President,
