Plain Common Sense
I LOVED this quote from Dragons’ Den star Deborah Meadon in her excellent book, Common Sense Rules.
‘The phrase 360-degree thinking should be put away in a locked box along with blue-sky thinking, thinking out of the box and countless other meaningless phrases that imply that otherwise one-dimensional, dull, uncreative thinking is the norm.
‘Businessmen who pepper their language with these wretched cliches are just saying that they don’t have an original thought and they don’t have a good command of the English language either.
‘Any business discipline requires creative thought, but creative thinking should be an everyday occurrence, not simply trotted out when demanded and on special occasions.’
And so say all of us at the Naked Leader.
Good book, enjoyed that one. Of all the dragons Den books this is the best.
Duncan Bannatyne is an equally good read in my opinion. He talks a lot of sense and made it from a small time ice cream man to a health club owner. From nothing. Fascinating story.
