Excerpts from the book:
"there are thousands of good reasons why you should not take action, but you need to find one good reason why you should"
"not all activity is progress"
"It worked because I made it work. I found out how to make it work and I made it work."
"Deadlines put a certain level of pressure on us to perform. Without these deadlines, we just do what we want at sometimes unacceptable paces"
"You see, a partner cannot demand what he cannot give. If I expect you to go one mile for me, it should mean I can or have gone one mile for you too"
"Partners are so called because they join forces to achieve a common goal. More often than not if there is nothing being worked towards, it becomes a boring exercise. "
"You will not find many people who will go through your toughest time with you and still carry a smile. Bill is the kind who will walk into a room when all others are leaving just to stand in support of you."
