I have a personal philosophy in life: If somebody else can do something that I'm doing, they should do it. And what I want to do is find things that would represent a unique contribution to the world - the contribution that only I, and my portfolio of talents, can make happen. Those are my priorities in life.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.
Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn't be done.
My advice to women in general: Even if you're doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want - and don't allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge.
If you have a dream, you can spend a lifetime studying, planning, and getting ready for it. What you should be doing is getting started.
Initiative is doing the right thing without being told.
If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative.
It's interesting how we often can't see the ways in which we are being strong - like, you can't be aware of what you're doing that's tough and brave at the time that you're doing it because if you knew that it was brave, then you'd be scared.
Learning is pleasurable but doing is the height of enjoyment.
Don't ever empty the bucket of mystery. Never let people define what you do. It's not about zigging when you should zag. It's not about doing something unprecedented and unpredictable. It's just about never being a word, or something that is not in the process of transformation.
Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.
Wernher von Braun
Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don't believe is right.
You've got to eat while you dream. You've got to deliver on short-range commitments, while you develop a long-range strategy and vision and implement it. The success of doing both. Walking and chewing gum if you will. Getting it done in the short-range, and delivering a long-range plan, and executing on that.
Public service must be more than doing a job efficiently and honestly. It must be a complete dedication to the people and to the nation.
Margaret Chase Smith
I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.
If you want to be successful, it's just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing.
You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.
People are going to wonder why you're trying to be different; it's just a natural instinct. If I was to walk down the street in a kilt, then dudes would wonder why I'm doing that, they'd think I was different or gay. It's natural for people to point fingers. That's my whole reason for trying to switch things up; don't judge a book by it's cover.
Labor wants pride and joy in doing good work, a sense of making or doing something beautiful or useful - to be treated with dignity and respect as brother and sister.
If you can't describe what you are doing as a process, you don't know what you're doing.
W. Edwards Deming
I'm getting married because I'm in love with a girl and want to spend my life with her. You can't live your life doing what other people want you to or you'll be miserable. At some point you just have to be yourself.
Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy in what you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.
People who are prone to anxiety are nearly always people-pleasers who fear conflict and negative feelings like anger. When you feel upset, you sweep your problems under the rug because you don't want to upset anyone. You do this so quickly and automatically that you're not even aware you're doing it.
David D. Burns
It requires bravery to do something no one else around you is doing.
Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.
John F. Kennedy
