Effective people are not problem-minded; they're opportunity-minded. They feed opportunities and starve problems.
-- Stephen Covey
It isn't so important that YOU know 250 people. What's important is that everyone you MEET knows 250 people. That means, in essence, that every time you develop a strong relationship with someone new, you've potentially expanded your personal sphere of influence by 250 people every... single... time.
-- Bob Burg
The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
-- Harry Emerson Fosdick
