Work hard for success - Week of Feb. 22

Management Moment
By Doug Dickerson

Power Point – It is one of the paradoxes of success that the things and ways which got you there are seldom the things that keep you there.
- Charles Handy

Power Thought – Success is a funny thing. We work hard to attain it then suddenly we realize the things that got us there have changed. Maintaining at your level of success will require hard work. The work will be even harder to go to the next level. You are positioned for success. Keep working!
- Doug Dickerson

Power Surge – Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
- Winston Churchill

The Extraordinary Life - Week of Feb. 15

Management Moment
By Doug Dickerson

Power Point – I can certainly provide anyone with ample evidence that the most ordinary person is capable of living an extraordinary life.
- Lou Holtz

Power Thought – It doesn’t take an extraordinary person to lead an extraordinary life. It takes a person willing to take a risk on a dream and follow his heart. Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone and make your dream come true? What are you waiting for?
- Doug Dickerson

Power Surge – Get excited and enthusiastic about your own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire—you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.
- Dennis Waitley

Leave mistakes in the past - Week of Feb. 8

Management Moment
By Doug Dickerson

Power Point – When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
- Hugh White

Power Thought – Mistakes are compounded when we keep looking at them. The thing to do is learn from it, move on, and quit living in the past. Your road to success is going to be littered with mistakes, just keep moving in the right direction!
- Doug Dickerson

Power Surge – While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.

- Henry C. Link

A Time For Action - Week of Feb. 1

Management Moment
By Doug Dickerson

Power Point – You can do all the requisite analysis and planning. It matters little if you lack the will to act. Too often, people are afraid to act.
- Jeff Schmitt

Power Thought – There comes a point in time within every organization that talking stops and action begins. Gather around the best minds, hear the best ideas, and then execute the plan. Progress is not measured by how much you talk, but by how much you do.
- Doug Dickerson

Power Surge – I’ve adopted the attitude that the company owner doesn’t need to win- the best idea does.
- John Maxwell
