An Engine Room Has No Windows

An Engine Room Has No Windows The engine room on a large cruise ship or yacht has no windows. If the captain commands, “full speed ahead,” the team in the engine room obeys, even if the ship is about to hit an iceberg. If the captain commands, “hard left rudder,” the team in the engine…

Be Forgetful

The older I get the more I hear people talk about being forgetful. Forgetting where people put their keys Forgetting why people went into the kitchen Forgetting where people parked their cars In my view, being selectively forgetful is a great thing. Most people will never achieve their full potential because of fear: Fear of…

Peanut Butter is for Sandwiches

Many business people take a “peanut butter approach” to the way they manage their time and resources.

The Embarrassment Factor

About 10 years ago I had some discussions with the owner of a company interested in learning more about Proforma.
