The Classic Pamela Positive: Thoughts from Peter Drucker

       

1. Build only on your islands of health and strength.

2. Only deal with people who are receptive to what you are trying to do.

3. Only start projects that will make a significant difference if you are successful.

4. Don’t try to build a business; build an organization.

5. Don’t subsidize failure; subsidize success.

6. Don’t try to fix things that are flawed in their concept.  Replace them with a superior concept that works.

7.  The only way to perpetuate a new idea is to make it the norm.

Peter Drucker (1909-2005) was an influential writer on management theory.  He wrote 39 books, which have been translated into 30 languages.  Among his best known books are Concept of the Corporation, The Effective Executive, and Post-Capitalist Society.
