Pearls of Wisdom… make of them what you will!
Every now and again, I came across someone that said something that really made me think. Here are a few of my favourites.
Colin 2004: “Never dismiss the good in search of perfection‘
It is sometimes easy to spend a disproportionate amount of effort trying to perfect something, and it often does not make a significant difference. Please do not interpret this advise as an endorsement of mediocrity.
Steve 2006: ‘Busy Fool Syndrome‘
This is where you subconsciously make yourself very busy doing something to make yourself feel good. It can often be a distraction from having to make difficult decisions.
Kevin 2002: ‘The only difference in a small company and a large company is volume‘
This is an incredible insight and the primary motivation behind the Rhino App. Large and mid-sized companies constantly invest to improve their technology and business processes so that they can remain competitive. They have sophisticated systems that manage their customers, their sales pipeline, their projects, their staff, their billing, their costs, their accounts, their documents and so on.
Small companies share many of the same challenges which is why we designed Rhino to address many of these challenges.
Kevin 2002: ‘I only use 10% of Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, I wish I could hide the other 90%‘ .
As in life, some of the best things are simple. It is often wise to avoid unnecessary complexity.
Nick 2010: ‘You don’t measure integrity in degrees‘ .
A friend of mine working in the police force gave me this advice. It is almost too simple but I often reflect on it when dealing with people. You need to be able to rely on people and getting this wrong can be frustrating and costly.
