Text Quotes
Experiment is the expected failure to deliberately learn something  (Scott Berkun Quotes) Big thoughts are fun to romanticize, but it’s many small insights coming together that bring big ideas into the world.  (Scott Berkun Quotes) When I’m the speaker, I know that special moment [just before speaking] is the only time I will have the entire audience’s full attention. Unless an alien spaceship crash-lands on stage midway through the talk, the silence before I begin is the most powerful moment I have. What defines how well I’ll do starts with how I use the power of that moment  (Scott Berkun Quotes) The way you find the answers to your problems will be unique to you  (Scott Berkun Quotes) The bottleneck is never code or creativity; it’s lack of clarity  (Scott Berkun Quotes) Good public speaking is based on good private thinking  (Scott Berkun Quotes) There is a big difference between wanting to say you wrote a book, and actually writing one. Many people think they want to write, even though they find crafting sentences and paragraphs unpleasant. They hope there is a way to write without writing. I can tell you with certainty there isn’t one  (Scott Berkun Quotes) It’s safe to assume that no matter where you stand, someone would be happy to be in your shoes, just as you’d be happy to be in someone else’s  (Scott Berkun Quotes) Innovative ideas are rarely rejected on their merits; they’re rejected because of how they make people feel. If you forget people’s concerns and feelings when you present an innovation, or neglect to understand their perspectives in your design, you’re setting yourself up to fail  (Scott Berkun Quotes) It’s not the fear of writing that blocks people, it’s fear of not writing well; something quite different  (Scott Berkun Quotes) People tell me this is obvious. But it’s ok to be obvious. Knowing and doing are different. Many people know many obvious things they completely fail to do, despite their knowledge  (Scott Berkun Quotes) Commit yourself to taking enough risks that you will fail some of the time. If you’re not failing, we’re not doing something sufficiently difficult or creative  (Scott Berkun Quotes) Big thoughts are fun to romanticize, but it’s many small insights coming together that bring big ideas into the world  (Scott Berkun Quotes) My intent is simply to know my material so well that I’m very comfortable with it. Confidence, not perfection, is the goal  (Scott Berkun Quotes) It’s rare for people to genuinely try to understand what others are trying to say  (Scott Berkun Quotes) History can’t give attention to what’s been lost, hidden, or deliberately buried; it is mostly a telling of success, not the partial failures that enabled success  (Scott Berkun Quotes) People who truly have control over time always have some in their pocket to give to someone in need. A sense of priorities drives their use of time and it can shift away from the ordinary work that’s easy to justify, in favor of the more ethereal, deeper things that are harder to justify. They protect their time from trivia and idiocy; these people are time rich. They provide themselves with a surplus of time. They might seem to idle, or relax more often than the rest, but that just might be a sign of their mastery, not their incompetence  (Scott Berkun Quotes) Anyone can criticize or accept praise, but initiating a positive exchange is a hallmark of a difference maker  (Scott Berkun Quotes) This is one big problem with working remotely: no one believes you have a job at all  (Scott Berkun Quotes) Part of the challenge of innovation is coming up with the problem to solve, not just its solution  (Scott Berkun Quotes) The temptation many creative people I know have is to strive for popularity. To make, do, and say things that other people like in the hopes of pleasing them. This motivation is nice. And sometimes the end result is good. But often what happens in trying so hard to please other people, especially many other people, the result is mediocre  (Scott Berkun Quotes) If you’d like to be good at something, the first thing to out the window is the notion of perfection  (Scott Berkun Quotes)
