Richard Branson Has Panache

28 Aug

“If you’re going to launch an airline in America, you need to make sure it’s far and away the best airline, and make sure you do it with panache and style and fun and flair, and really shake up the industry”  

“Your brand needs to make its mark, and making that mark means that when you go offer space travel or something, people will say they’d like you to be successful at that as well. So one thing leads on to another.” 

Richard Branson


With an open heart and an open mind

With an open heart and an open mind

It might not be warranted, but you won’t get far without it. Don’t bother going to that meeting or reading that book unless you can momentarily assume the message comes from a place of goodwill and generosity.

Skepticism doesn’t help you hear.

Go For The Gold

“Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one’s better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk, and to act.”
—Maxwell Maltz

NASA and The Olympics

7 Aug

It is pretty easy to watch the evening news and be bitten by the depression bug- wars, recessions, global climate change…the list goes on. But, don’t count old faithful out just yet. Watching Americans compete in the Olympics and getting word of NASA’s amazing Mars landing are truly inspirational stories for us all. Unbelievable the feats our athletes and engineers are making!
