At the start of every month I pick a quote I like and hang it at my desk and try to use it to guide my thought process for the month and I thought I would share them here as I was cleaning off my desk for the year.
Here are the quotes I used in 2015:
There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.
Never confuse movement with action.
You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skills.
– Jim Rohn
Courage is grace under pressure.
The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is reason.
– Thomas Paine
If I panic, everyone else panics.
– Kobe Bryant
Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.
I shouldn’t be near Vegas and have money in my pocket.
(Let’s just say I had a lot of fun at BSides, Blackhat and Defcon this year.)
If you ask me anything I don’t know, I’m not going to answer.
– Yogi Berra
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
– Marcus Aurelius
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The next best thing is the wrong thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.
– Theodore Roosevelt
Have a strategic plan. It’s called doing things.
– Herb Kelleher
…and yes I know doing this now apparently makes me dumb.
