NO IDLING - Do The Work:

Discussed about thirty successful inspirational people’s quotations and stories in brief. No Idling. Do your best for successful life.

1. ANDREW WARNER:

“I have to build something bigger than Bradford and Reed or else I will spend the rest of my life looking back at the good old days. And that is not the kind of life I want. On to bigger and better.”

2. CHARLIE GILKEY

"People love the benefits of change but not the process of it. Make sure you're clear that the juice is worth the squeeze before you make the change."

"Our perception of the world rarely matches the way things are - and the more we collectively discuss what we're seeing, the closer we get to seeing the way things are. Unfortunately, that gets us into the sea of social troubles."

3. STEVE GORDON Jr.:

Steve Gordon Jr said “Wait a second. You realize that everything you are describing has only one way to get there.”

4. MARK SILVER:

“Don’t look left or right. Choose love. Do the work”

5. JIM BOUCHARD:

“Perfection is not a destination; it's a never-ending process...Enjoy!”

“Remember that quitting is always an option, and it's the only one that guarantees a predictable result. Stay in the fight and everything is at risk. Quit and you know what will happen NOTHING!”

6. ARNE VAN OOSTEROM:

“Design thinking is glue between all disciplines”

7. MICHAEL PORT:

  • “We don’t get contacts, we don’t find contacts, we don’t have contacts; we make connections with real people.”

  • “Be the guy people want to do things for.”

  • “To take those risks not only do you need to silence the external critics, you also need to let go of the inner critic that tries to worry you about the fear of rejection.”

8. MARSHALL ULRICH:

“Keep going, one foot in front of the other, millions of times. Face forward and take the next step. Don’t flinch when the road gets rough, you fall down, you miss a turn, or the bridge you planned to cross has collapsed. Do what you say you’ll do, and don’t let anything or anyone stop you. Deal with the obstacles as they come. Move on. Keep going, no matter what, one foot in front of the other, millions of times.”

9. BECKY BLANTON:

“One of the best pieces of advice we’ve heard for spotting potentially abusive people (spouses, dates, friends etc.) is to watch how they treat waiters and waitresses. No one expects you to become friends or even chatty with your server, but a waiter or waitress is a professional too and deserves to be treated with the same respect as a peer.”

10. DAVID SITEMAN GARLAND:

“Money follows passion-not other way around.”

“When I wrote, smarter, faster, cheaper, my 1st mistake that I would never do again is I didn't have a big backend behind the book; I didn't have the smarter, faster, cheaper advance course. If I’d done that, we’d be doing this interview from my private plane.”

11. NEIL PASRICHA:

“Life is so great that we only get a tiny moment to enjoy everything we see. And that moment is right now. And that moment is counting down. And that moment is always, always fleeting. You will never be as young as you are right now.”

12. ANISH KAPOO:

“Red, of course, is the color of the interior of our bodies. In a way it's inside out, red.”

“There's something imminent in the work, but the circle is only completed by the viewer.”

13. BOB POOLE:

“It was the latter that set off alarm bell in the according department, which might have been willing to let the plane pass, but not one with floats.”

14. JAMES ALTUCHER:

“The only truly safe thing you can do is to try over and over again. To go for it, to get rejected, to repeat, to strive, to wish. Without rejection there is no frontier, there is no passion, and there is no magic.”

No idling

15. JOEL D CANFIELD:

“Made a stop on the way and bought a bottle of old overholt. No point buying something expensive when you can’t be sure any of it is going to stay down.”

16. BOB BURG:

“As long as you’re trying to be someone else, or putting on some act or behavior someone else taught you, you have no possibility of truly reaching people. The most valuable thing you have to give people is yourself. No matter what you think you’re selling, what you’re really offering is you.”

17. CAROL ROTH:

“Eighty to 90 percent of success in a company has nothing to do with business at all - it's all personal.”

No Idling

18. WILLIAM A VERDONE:

“I'm not saying that atheists can't act morally or have moral knowledge. But when I ascribe virtue to an atheist, it's as a theist who sees the atheist as conforming to objective moral values. The atheist, by contrast, has no such basis for morality. And yet all moral judgments require a basis for morality, some standard of right and wrong.”

19. KARL STAIB:

“When your company puts out its core values into the world, your people will challenge themselves to live up to the values that everyone created,”

20. NEIL PATEL:

“Do something you are passionate about because it won’t feel like work. This way you will work harder and longer.”

21. FRANK MCKINNEY:

“Recognize your highest calling as early in life as possible. Proactively and creatively persist, day in and day out. Leave an enduring legacy.”
