Here are some superb inspirational quotes by JD Hooge speaking in Portland Oregon, USA at a Creative Morning’s event.
- Be allergic to bullshit
- Make the complex, simple
- Be honest, build trust, be honest
- Don’t believe in luck
- Be inspired by the pioneer spirit
- Perfection is so last decade
- Chase the small ideas
- Begin anywhere
- Slow down
- Get Personal, Stay Personal
- We are all making it up as we go along
My favourites of the bunch:
Be Honest, build trust, Be honest – This is essential not just in life but in business. If you have a company that sells something, as soon as you stop doing this you are finished unless you change quickly. In the early days of Google they are said to of had on the wall in their offices, “Don’t be Evil”.
Begin Anywhere – it is the hardest part of any journey. Whether you are going to cycle across the world, or you are trying to get motivated on the next project. Writ down the next step, and do it. Sounds simple but it is essentially the hardest part of any task. If you want to read more into this, then I recommend buying Getting Things Done by David Allen. He is the master of this philosophy, and he is a really genuine guy. He has worked with most of the Fortune 500 companies so he really knows his stuff whatever level you are at.
