Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 9/8/14

This week’s focus point: My track coach (I was a sprinter) taught me how to stay low coming out of the starting blocks and lean as I approached the finish line. My dog, Bentley, trots by moving his legs alternately on each side, but sprints by moving his front legs together and then his back legs through the opening in the front ones. We have to change our form when we desire speed. If you want to write something quickly, stop self-editing. If you want to convey an idea quickly, stop giving background information. If you want to impress someone quickly, provide an idea immediately. Some people think life is a marathon. I think it’s a series of sprints.

Monday Morning Perspective: Government has proved itself capable of doing only two things with great effectiveness. It can wage war. And it can inflate the currency. — Peter Drucker in “The Age of Discontinuity”
