Pay More Attention to the Basics

 "Most things get done in small doses. 'Every day in every way I'm getting better and better,' goes the inspirational mantra. Japanese business language speaks prescriptively of kaizen, continuous improvement. Trying routinely to get better one step at a time is a far better way to get better than shooting constantly for the moon.

- Theodore Levitt

"The most constructive achievements of the twentieth century were the work of completely uncharismatic people. The two military men who guided the Allies to victory in World War II were Dwight Eisenhower and George Marshall. Both were highly disciplined, highly competent, and deadly dull." 

- Peter F. Drucker

"Eat all the junk food you want - as long as you cook it yourself." 

- Michael Pollan
