Productivity

Grow-Growing-Grown

“Before you become a leader, success is all about growing yourself. After you become a leader, success is about growing others.” – Jack Welch

No Thank You

“The most important reason for your ‘no’ is that you need your downtime so you won’t behave like a jerk because you’re depleted. And you don’t want to battle an appetite spiked by the stress of overcommitment. But that’s your secret; others don’t need that information. So just smile, say no, thank you, and keep moving.” – Holly Mosier

Hand in Hand

“There is little success where there is little laughter.” – Andrew Carnegie

Long Play

“Proper sleep has helped me get to where I am today as an athlete, and it is something that I continue to rely on every day.” – Tom Brady

Sí se puede

“Sí se puede.” (“Yes we can.”) – Dolores Huerta

Already Naked

“Remembering you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There’s no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs

Energy is Everything

“Neglecting passion blocks creative flow. When you’re passionate, you’re energized. Likewise, when you lack passion, your energy is low and unproductive. Energy is everything when it comes to being successful.” – Gabrielle Bernstein

He Who Hesitates

“While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.” – Henry Link

The Whole Enchilada

“Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person – not just an employee – are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled. Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability.” – Anne M. Mulcahy

Clear the Cobwebs

“Sometimes the biggest gain in productive energy will come from cleaning the cobwebs, dealing with old business, and clearing the desks – cutting loose debris that’s impeding forward motion.” – David Allen
