Most of these “Leadership Proverbs” I’ve just picked up, absorbed and imbibed by some process of osmosis along the way and don’t know exactly whom they originated from. But when I know I’ll make reference, and when I don’t it’s not that I’m ungrateful or that I want to appear like a genius. It’s genuinely that I can’t remember. So if I’ve flogged something from you let me know and I’ll happily acknowledge it.

It takes so long to craft a program or an event to get it to a point where it is exactly the way you want it. It takes a lot of time and a lot of effort. And by the time you’ve got it the way you want it you’re probably exhausted and are just ready to let it run. But once you resign yourself to keeping it like it is it’s already begun the slide into decline.
