Five Ninths

How we think:

For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past and the present are certain to miss the future.

A risk is a chance you take; if it fails you can recover. A gamble is a chance taken; if it fails, recovery is impossible.

Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.

There is no-one who cannot vastly improve their leadership through study.

I would define leadership as the projection of personality. It is that combination of persuasion, compulsion and example that makes other people do what you want them to do.

Leadership is the art of achieving more than the science of management says is possible.

We should be doing something even better than you could do for yourself. Otherwise, why hire an advisor?
