If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand.
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems are the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.
Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.
Get mad, and then get over it.
Don't let your ego get too close to your position, so that if your position gets shot down, your ego doesn't go with it.
Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard.
Don't bother people for help without first trying to solve the problem yourself.
You don't know what you can get away with until you try.
A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.
