  3. 3. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES “ Effective executives do not start with their tasks. They start with their time. And they do not start out with planning. They start by finding out where their time actually goes.” THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 25)
  4. 4. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES Effective executives “… force themselves to set priorities and stay with their priority decisions. They know they have no choice but to do first things first — and second things not at all.” THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 24)
  5. 5. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 24) “ Effective executives build on strengths—their own strengths, the strengths of their superiors, colleagues, and subordinates. They do not build on weakness. They do not start with the things they cannot do.”
  6. 6. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES “ Effective executives focus on outward contribution. They gear their efforts to results rather than to work. They start out with the question, ‘What results are expected of me?’ rather than with the work to be done.” THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 24)
  7. 7. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 52) “ The effective executive focuses on contribution. He asks, ‘What can I contribute that will significantly affect the performance and the results of the institution I serve?’ ”
  8. 8. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 55) “ Executives who do not ask themselves, ‘What can I contribute?’ are not only likely to aim low, they are likely to aim at the wrong things. Above all, they may define their contribution too narrowly.”
  9. 9. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 71) “ The effective executive makes strength productive. He knows that he cannot build on weakness.

  12. 12. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES “ Effective executives do not make a great many decisions. They concentrate on the important ones. They try to think through what is strategic and generic, rather than ‘solve problems.’” THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 113)
  13. 13. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 144) “ The effective executive encourages opinions. But he insists that the people who voice them also think through what it is that the ‘experiment’ would have to show.”
  14. 14. BIZ BOOK MONEY QUOTES THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE PETER DRUCKER (pg. 155) “ There is one final question the effective decision-maker asks: ‘Is a decision really necessary?’ One alternative is always the alternative of doing nothing.”
