Tom Peters (1942-Present)

“Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders.”

“The simple act of paying positive attention to people has a great deal to do with productivity.”

“There is no such thing as a minor lapse of integrity.”

“Almost all quality improvement comes via simplification of design, manufacturing… layout, processes, and procedures.”

“Formula for success: under promise and over deliver.”

“Test fast, fail fast, adjust fast.”

“Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.”

“If you’re not confused, you’re not paying attention.”

“If no one is pissed-off with you then you are dead but just haven’t figured it out yet.”

“If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.”

“Inspiring visions rarely (I’m tempted to say never) include numbers.”

“Design is so critical it should be on the agenda of every meeting in every single department.”

“My charge to the design team was for them to do the meanest, scrappiest, street-fighting dog they could sketch.”
