Insight #1 Your life is too complex to be random. Keep your eyes wide open & pay attention.
Insight #2 Good times don’t last forever; bad times don’t last forever — and even though the bad ones seem to linger forever, if you can endure them, you’ll get through them.
Insight #3 “I know God won’t give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish he didn’t trust me so much.” - Mother Teresa
Insight #4 On resilience | If you want to hack the process of enhancing your mental resilience, get a muse, for their example will heighten your focus and ignite your ingenuity.
Insight #5 On communication | In business, and in life, the best method of communication is when the messenger believes in the message, and the best way to deliver it is face to face.
Insight #6 On management | In tough times, management has to show the way. Their cuts and rewards have to be curtailed more than anyone else, for unless they have something to lose, their words will have little impact.
Insight #7 The 3-and-1 egg theory | In business, you’ll always have Three Constituents to please: the stockholders, the employees, and the customer. If anyone of them is out-of-balance at anytime, trouble is forthcoming.
Insight #8 On giving | Don’t go through life with two catcher’s mitts. Leave one hand free to throw things back to society.

Insight #9 On Leadership | The most admired leaders have 2 things in common: Humility - they don’t know what they don’t know
Insight #9 On Leadership | The most admired leaders have 2 things in common: Decisiveness - they never shoot the messenger. When bad news lurks, they accept it, act on it, but they never blame.
Insight #10 On legacy | As long as just ONE person thinks about you, or talks about you, that’s the greatest legacy you can leave, because no one cares what you know, unless they first know that you care.
