Dont Try Teach A Pig To Sing

  1. 1. Don’t try & teach a pig to sing. It’s a waste of time and it annoys the pig.
  2. 2. I learned much more from defeat . More than I ever learnt from winning
  3. 3. I have learnt silence from the talkative; tolerance from the intolerant; kindness from the unkind. Yet strangely, I am ungrateful to these teachers
  4. 4. The hardest of all is learning to be a well of affection and not a fountain: to show them we love them not when we feel like it but when they do
  5. 5. Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as f you were to live forever
  6. 6. If I fall short of your expectations and you don’t tell me we have both failed.
  7. 7. If you want to build a ship do not send your men out to get wood and tools… but teach them a longing for the wide open sea
  8. 8. Coaching is helping to achieve their goals by themselves, though not on their own
  9. 9. What gets measured gets done, what gets measured and gets feedback gets done well, what get rewarded gets repeated.
  10. 10. We all have possibilities that we don’t know about, we can do things we don’t even dream we can do
