A Different Kind of Courage
1. Just because you take a plunge in something you believe in doesn’t mean your efforts will produce the results you expected.
2. You’d like to see around corners, but you can’t. You trust your judgment. Sometimes that’s not good enough, but doesn’t mean you failed.
3. The results of your judgment aren’t what you expected but better? Time to smile big and admit it. Your associates will love you for it.
4. It’s just amazing how much being at ease with yourself puts your people at ease.
5. I once was asked sternly what I thought this one fellow had that his two main competitors for the top job didn’t have. My answer: Poise.
6. When things go bad—beyond your worst fears—the only answer is to fess up and acknowledge the possibility of your undue willfulness.
7. When you have success against the odds and recognize your intuition was your guide, recall humbly that’s not entirely human.
