Thought For The Week
THIS week’s thought comes 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.’
There are a lot of business cliches that should be scrapped, and these are a few very good ones.
Great book. have read it. Thoroughly sound advice from a woman who has her head screwed on.
