Pete HattonIn his presentation at a quarterly business review this week, my colleague Pete Hatton offered bits of wisdom I just had to pass on to you:

General George S. Patton, US Army

“If everyone is thinking alike, someone isn’t thinking.”

“Make your plans to fit the circumstances.”

“A good plan violently executed today is better than a perfect plan executed at some indefinite point in the future.”

Tom Landry, Dallas Cowboys Coach

“I don’t believe in team motivation. I believe in getting a team prepared so it knows it will have the necessary confidence when it steps on a field and be prepared to play a good game.”

Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United Manager

“When an Italian says it’s pasta I check under the sauce to make sure. They are innovators of the smokescreen.”

“David Beckham is Britain’s finest striker of a football not because of God-given talent but because he practises with a relentless application that the vast majority of less gifted players wouldn’t contemplate.”

Pope John Paul II

“Stupidity is also a gift of God, but one mustn’t misuse it.”

Thanks, Pete!
