5 Quotations: Entrepreneurs Innovate – Peter Drucker

March 17, 2007

Entrepreneurs have habit of Innovation. They have capabilities for execution of new ideas. They have courage to explore new paths and walk on these paths very effectively. When opportunities are less in the system, they create a range of opportunities through effective utilization of all resources.  

They have abilities to exploit change. They have a clear understanding for moving the organisation at productive track. In this dynamic world, we are facing lots of problem due to lack of wealth. So a sense of enterpreneursship can solve these problems by thinking out of the box. 

Inventor of modern management, Peter ducker has given a new direction to entrepreneurs for practice of Innovation.  

Some of insight from peter Drucker’s Book, innovation & entrepreneurship. 

“Entrepreneurs innovate. Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurships. It is an act thet endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.”   

“Entrepreneurs see change as the norm and as healthy. Usually, they do bring about the change themselves. But –and this defines entrepreneur and entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it and exploite is as an opportunity”   

“Entrepreneurs, by definition, shift resources form areas of low productivity and yield to areas of high productivity and yield”.    

“Everyone who can face decision making can learn to be an entrepreneur and to beahave entrepreneurially.Entrepreneurship, then, is behavior rather than personality trait. And its foundation lies in concept and theory rather on intuition” 

“To be entrepreneurial and enterprise has to have special charachtership over and above being new and small. Indeed, entrepreneur is a minority among new business. They create something new, something different; they change or transmute value”. 

So the feeling of entrepreneurship should be injected in our mental models for evolution of Innovations.

21 Effective Quotations of Charles Darwin

March 15, 2007

“The Self, smaller than the small, greater than the great, is hidden in the hearts of creatures. The wise, by the grace of the Creator, behold the Lord, majestic and desireless and become free from grief”.-Upanishad 

In our beautiful world, both theory of evolution & theory of creation are moving for co-evolution & co-creation of knowledge resources. At platform of problem we can extract relevant knowledge from all sources for solution of coming next problem. So Solution is SYNERGY in all time.

 21 Effective Quotations of Charles Darwin 

1.    Man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system- with all these exalted powers- Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.

2.    The moral faculties are generally and justly esteemed as of higher value than the intellectual powers. But we should bear in mind that the activity of the mind in vividly recalling past impressions is one of the fundamental though secondary bases of conscience. This affords the strongest argument for educating and stimulating in all possible ways the intellectual faculties of every human being.

3.    In the long history of humankind those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.

4.    It is not the strongest of the species that survives… nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.

5.    In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not the man to whom the idea first occurs. 6.    Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge; it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.

7.    I fully subscribe to the judgment of those writers who maintain that of all the differences between man and the lower animal, the moral sense of conscience is by far the most important. It is the most noble of all the attributes of man.

8.    In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment.

9.    We will now discuss in a little more detail the Struggle for Existence.

10.     A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.

11.     Without speculation there is no good and original observation.

12.     I have steadily endeavored to keep my mind free so as to give up any hypothesis, however much beloved and I cannot resist forming one on every subject, as soon as the facts are shown to be opposed to it.

13.     False views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for everyone takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness; and when this is done, one path towards error is closed and the road to truth is often at the same time opened.

14.     A moral being is one who is capable of reflecting on his past actions and their motives – of approving of some and disapproving of others.

15.     The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble by us; and I for one must be content to remain an agnostic.

16.     The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.

17.     In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment.

18.     How so many absurd rules of conduct, as well as so many absurd religious beliefs, have originated, we do not know; nor how it is that they have become, in all quarters of the world, so deeply impressed on the minds of men; but it is worthy of remark that a belief constantly inculcated during the early years of life, while the brain is impressionable, appears to acquire almost the nature of an instinct; and the very essence of an instinct is that it is followed independently of reason.

19.     I love fools’ experiments. I am always making them.

20.     Doing what little one can to increase the general stock of knowledge is as respectable an object of life, as one can in any likelihood pursue.  

21.     The highest possible stage in moral culture is when we recognize that we ought to control our thoughts.

21 Effective Quotation of Swami Vivekananda

March 11, 2007

1.    If the mind is intensely eager, everything can be accomplished—mountains can be crumbled into atoms. 

2.    Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.  

3.    Come out into the universe of Light. Everything in the universe is yours, stretch out your arms and embrace it with love. If you every felt you wanted to do that, you have felt God. 

4.    All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind. 

5.    Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore make your own future.  6.    There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the universe. Like the silkworm you have built a cocoon around yourself…. Burst your own cocoon and come out aw the beautiful butterfly, as the free soul. Then alone you will see Truth. 

7.    It is our own mental attitude which makes the world what it is for us. Our thought make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light. First, believe in this world, that there is meaning behind everything. Everything in the world is good, is holy and beautiful. If you see something evil, think that you do not understand it in the right light. Throw the burden on yourselves!  

8.    Hold to the idea, “I am not the mind, I see that I am thinking, I am watching my mind act,” and each day the identification of yourself with thoughts and feelings will grow less, until at last you can entirely separate yourself from the mind and actually know it to be apart from yourself. 

9.    All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore love for love’s sake, because it is law of life, just as you breathe to live. 

10.     Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth. 

11.     Even the greatest fool can accomplish a task if it were after his or her heart. But the intelligent ones are those who can convert every work into one that suits their taste. 

12.     Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers and let them go their own way. 

13.     Each work has to pass through these stages—ridicule, opposition, and then acceptance. Those who think ahead of their time are sure to be misunderstood. 

14.     If you think that you are bound, you remain bound; you make your own bondage. If you know that you are free, you are free this moment. This is knowledge, knowledge of freedom. Freedom is the goal of all nature. 

15.     As long as we believe ourselves to be even the least different from God, fear remains with us; but when we know ourselves to be the One, fear goes; of what can we be afraid? 

16.     Your Atman is the support of the universe—whose support do you stand in need of? Wait with patience and love and strength. If helpers are not ready now, they will come in time. Why should we be in a hurry? The real working force of all great work is in its almost unperceived beginnings. 

17.     Learning and wisdom are superfluities, the surface glitter merely, but it is the heart that is the seat of all power. It is not in the brain but in the heart that the Atman, possessed of knowledge, power, and activity, has its seat. 

18.     Understanding human nature is the highest knowledge, and only by knowing it can we know God? It is also a fact that the knowledge of God is the highest knowledge, and only by knowing God can we understand human nature 

19.     Purity, patience, and perseverance are the three essentials to success and, above all, love. 

20.     If you want to have life, you have to die every moment for it. Life and death are only different expressions of the same thing looked at from different standpoints; they are the falling and the rising of the same wave, and the two form one whole. 

21.     Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal. Do this either by work, or worship or psychic control or philosophy – by one or more or all of these and be free.

21 Effective Quotations of Gearge Bernard Shaw

March 7, 2007

*      If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples, then you and I still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

 *      Forget about likes and dislikes. They are of no consequence. Just do what must be done. This may not be happiness, but it is greatness. 

*      You see things as they are and ask, ‘Why?’ I dream things as they never were and ask, ‘Why not?'”  

*      Life was driving at brains–at its darling object: an organ by which it can attain not only self-consciousness but self-understanding. 

*      Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. 

*      People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.  

*      The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

*      Men are wise, not in proportion to their experience, but in their capacity for experience. 

*      Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world. 

*      A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.  

*      Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough.  

*      Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.  

*      We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.  

*      This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations. 

*      What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.  

*      All the sweetness of religion is conveyed to the world by the hands of storytellers and image-makers. Without their fictions the truths of religion would for the multitude be neither intelligible nor even apprehensible; and the prophets would prophesy and the teachers teach in vain.  

*      We must always think about things, and we must think about things as they are, not as they are said to be.  

*      Every child has a right to its own bent. . . . It has a right to find its own way and go its own way, whether that way seems wise or foolish to others, exactly as an adult has. It has a right to privacy as to its own doings and its own affairs as much as if it were its own father.

 *      Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. 

*      The love of economy is the root of all virtue. 

*      When you loved me I gave you the whole sun and stars to play with. I gave you eternity in a single moment, strength of the mountains in one clasp of your arms, the volume of all the seas in one impulse of your soul. A moment only; but was it not enough? Were you not paid then for all the rest of your struggle on earth? . . . When I opened the gates of paradise, were you blind? Was it nothing to you? When all the stars sang in your ears and all the winds swept you the heart of heaven, were you deaf? Were you dull? was I no more to you than a bone to a dog? Was it not enough? We spent eternity together; and you ask me for a little lifetime more. We possessed all the universe together; and you ask me to give you my scanty wages as well. I have given you the greatest of all things; and you ask me to give you little things. I gave you your own soul: you ask me for my body as a plaything. Was it not enough? Was it not enough?

21 Effective Quotations of Mahatma Gandhi

March 6, 2007

*      As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.  

*      It may be long before the law of love will be recognised in international affairs. The machineries of government stand between and hide the hearts of one people from those of another.  

*      Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well. 

*      Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it. But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of the truth. 

*      The main purpose of life is to live rightly, think rightly, act rightly. The soul must languish when we give all our thought to the body. 

*      A principle is the expression of perfection, and as imperfect beings like us cannot practice perfection, we devise every moment limits of its compromise in practice.

*      I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and Non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could.  

 *      Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into.

*       You must be the change you want to see in the world.   

 *      In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.  

 *      There are times when you have to obey a call which is the highest of all, i.e. the voice of conscience even though such obedience may cost many a bitter tear, and even more, separation from friends, from family, from the state, to which you may belong, from all that you have held as dear as life itself. For this obedience is the law of our being.  

*      The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.  

*       Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.  

*      Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory

*      First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.    

*      Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.    

*      The history of the world is full of men who rose to leadership, by sheer force of self-confidence, bravery and tenacity.       

*      The earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.  

 *      In nature there is a fundamental unity running through all the diversity we see about us. Religions are given to mankind so as to accelerate the process of realisation of fundamental unity.    

*      Consciously or unconsciously, everyone of us does render some service or another. If we cultivate the habit of doing this service deliberately, our desire for service will steadily grow stronger, and it will make not only for our own happiness, but that of the world at large.

 *       Truth quenches untruth, love quenches anger, self-suffering quenches violence. This eternal rule is a rule not for saints only but for all.

*      Truth quenches untruth, love quenches anger, self-suffering quenches violence. This eternal rule is a rule not for saints only but for all.

Leadership Quotes by Peter F. Drucker

March 2, 2007

*      Leadership is not magnetic personality—that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not “making friends and influencing people”—that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations. 

*      The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I.” And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say “I.” They don’t think “I.” They think “we”; they think “team.” They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but “we” gets the credit…. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done. 

*       No institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it. It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under a leadership composed of average human beings.  

 *      Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.  

*      Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.

When you are inspired by some great purpose

February 21, 2007

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

– Patanjali, the father of yoga-
