Posted on: May 13th, 2013 | 0 Comments

“Put your best people on your biggest opportunities, not your biggest problems.” — Jim Collins

Peter Drucker¬†observes, “It is more productive to convert an opportunity into results than to solve a problem.”

Warren Buffet¬†advises, “Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.”

The Bottom Line: Leaders seize opportunities, give them ‘top priority’ status and dedicate their best people to those assignments.
